Santa and reindeer to bring Christmas cheer for families and patients at Marie Curie Hospice

Solihull Editorial 20th Nov, 2018   0

REINDEER are ready to sprinkle Christmas cheer for families and patients at the Marie Curie Hospice, Solihull.

Santa will be arriving at the Marie Curie Christmas fair on Sunday (November 25) from 11am to 1pm.

Reindeer Park in Sutton Coldfield has offered the services of Claus and Blizzard to the hospice for the day to meet lucky children.

There will be opportunities to have a photo with the reindeer and meet Santa in his grotto.

Reindeer Park’s Sarah Plunkett said: “Marie Curie is an extremely worthy cause and we at a Reindeer Park are proud to be able support them at their Christmas Fair.

“We will be bringing two of our magical reindeer to spread a little Christmas cheer and assist in their vital fundraising.”

There will be fun for all the family with festive refreshments, craft tables for children to write letters to Santa and plenty of stalls to do some early Christmas shopping.

And one of Solihull’s rising stars – who has written openly about what it is like to live with Asperger’s Syndrome at the same time as dealing with the death of a loved one – will also sign copies of his new book at midday.

Tyler Inman put pen to paper following his grandma’s death when he was 10 and wrote Invisible Me.

The book is said to give a raw, honest and, in some parts, heart-breaking insight into what it’s like living with Asperger’s.

The condition is a form of autism, and people with Asperger’s syndrome often see, hear and feel the world differently to other people.

For Tyler, he describes this as being ‘invisible’.

Tyler wrote his book in the hope it would help other families and young people like himself deal with grief, autism, depression and life in general.

He has been working closely with the child bereavement services at the Marie Curie Hospice.

And for every book he sells a donation will be given directly back to the facilities which have been supporting him and his family.

The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome. Please note there is limited parking on site.

Visitors should go to the Marie Curie Hospice West Midlands, Marsh Lane, Solihull, B91 2PQ.
