Forest Heaths Crime Prevention Panel support West Suffolk's children
Forest Heath Crime Prevention Panel started Christmas off for the residents of Mildenhall and the surrounding villages in December with their Santa Sleigh.
The panel work tirelessly during the year to organise the Santa Sleigh, to ensure they have enough volunteers so that they can cover as much of Forest Heath as possible.
We joined them for the second year running which is just wonderful as it is always a joy to see the smiles on the faces of both the young and old. You can see it really starts Christmas for so many people and it was a pleasure to be part of it.
The end result of the Santa Sleigh fundraising week was a wonderful donation of £1064.50 to our children's department. This money will be given to our Arthrose Appeal which supports the orthopaedic wards and departments and will be given specifically by our paediatric fracture clinic to help their young patients have the specialist equipment needed post surgery.
