23rd December 2022

The Deputy Mayor of Lisburn and Castlereagh Council, Councillor Michelle Guy brought a very special visitor along to the Paediatric Unit, based at the Ulster Hospital to spread some Christmas cheer.

Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule to pose for photographs and chat to the children and ensure that he has all the correct items on his list to deliver to them on Christmas Eve.

Deputy Mayor Guy was delighted to spend time talking to the young people on the ward and she even allowed them to wear her chain of office for a few photographs, she said, “It is a privilege to be here with my good friend Santa today to wish all of the Children and staff a very happy Christmas and deliver some Christmas treats from the members of the Lisburn and Castlereagh Council.

“It is lovely to see the happiness that Santa can bring to these children, no matter their age.”

Hospital Play Specialist Sharon Millar who welcomed Deputy Mayor Guy and Santa to the Paediatric Unit added, “I would like to say a huge thank you to Santa for taking some time out of his very busy day to visit and also thank Deputy Mayor Guy and the Lisburn and Castlereagh Council members for their kindness and their very welcome donation of toys and selection boxes to the young people in our care.”
