Glendarragh Santa Sleigh Run

Michael Crouser and Glendarragh Party Tub & Bouncy Castle Hire will be bringing Santa and his sleigh to six Lidl Northern Ireland stores across County Down and Greater Belfast, to support young lives against cancer with CLIC Sargent. 

Glendarragh Santa Sleigh Run

Owner Michael from Newtownards in County Down has gathered up the elves early from the North Pole to meet families at various Lidl Northern Ireland stores.

Michael decided to use the festive season to raise money for CLIC Sargent in memory of his brother Gareth, who sadly died aged 20. 

For several months, Santa's head elf, Michael, and a few other elves have be busy working in Santa's workshop ensuring the sleigh was ready to depart on Christmas Eve.  

Elf Michael said: "We want to raise as much money as possible for CLIC Sargent. They supported not only Gareth but also my family through a very difficult time so we are doing this in Gareth’s memory."
