Have you got a little someone who would like to receive a personal letter from the man in red himself this December? Una Bhan Craft Shop has established a direct line to Santa Claus and has arranged for him to reply to children’s letters. Your child can write their letter to Santa and post it in the ‘Special Santa Box’ in the Una Bhan Craft Shop, €5 per child (to cover admin charges – no stamp required!), then leave the rest to us. Make sure your child includes their full name, address, age and special requests for Christmas and include a mention of any brothers, sisters or special friends so the reply can be really personal. We will make sure that Santa gets to read each letter and write a personal letter back, which will be posted directly to the child. Santa’s Letter Service will run up until Saturday 18th December.
