CHILDREN'S charities in the South West are being invited to request FREE VIP tickets for a party with Father Christmas in Weston-super-Mare.
The Winter Gardens is running a series of children's parties with disco and Father Christmas appearance throughout December for youngsters to enjoy the festive season.
To launch the events the seafront venue is inviting local children's charities to apply for five VIP tickets each for one of the parties on either December 12, 15, 19 or 22, from 11am-1pm.
Peter Undery, general manager, said: "There are so many good causes in the region working with children to help improve their lives.
"We believe they all do a marvellous job and we would therefore like to reward four charities for their worthy efforts by offering them five party tickets each to help bring smiles to children's faces this festive season.
"Charities that benefit children can enter our competition by writing to us saying why they believe they are deserving of the tickets and what winning the tickets would mean to the children they would bring along."
All charities must submit their entry by December 5, 2012, and send them to The Winter Gardens, Royal Parade, Weston-super-Mare, clearly marked Christmas Charity Tickets and the charities will be notified if they are successful.
The parties featuring a disco, party food, a visit from Father Christmas and goody bag on Wednesday 12, Saturday 15, Wednesday 19 and Saturday 22 December are also all open to the general public.
Tickets cost £7 and are on sale now, call the Winter Gardens Box office on 01934 417117.
