Colly McLaughlin from GCR said: “It’s a free event for kids to visit Santa and receive a gift.

Galliagh Community Response have announced that Santa's bilingual post box has been installed at Kelly's Spar on Fairview Road.

"It’s probably the most difficult time ever for struggling families and hopefully we can help spread a little cheer while helping local crafters make a few pound for their own families and also raise some funds for the Foyle Down Syndrome Trust.”

GCR have also organised a bilingual Santa’s post box at Kelly’s Spar (the Co-Op) which is open from December 1 to 17.

A spokesperson said: “Santa and his elves will then lift the post box on the 17th so Santa can reply to each child’s letter.

"Ná Dean Dearmaid Daidí ná Nollaig is bilingual and loves to reply to letters written as gaeilge.”
