Mercury Mall gets shoppers to help find Santa Claus just in time for the shopping centre’s grotto opening
PUBLISHED: 15:00 06 November 2018
Families were enlisted by a shopping centre to help find Santa in order to try and raise as much money as possible for charities in the borough.
Between Thursday, November 1, and November 4, Mercury Mall, Mercury Gardens, Romford, invited families to help crack the codes and find the man himself after disappearing for a year.
But after a year-long investigation by E.L.F (Escaped Legend Force), he was traced back to an abandoned room at the shopping centre.
Now thanks to help from shoppers, Santa will once again take his place at the grotto tomorrow, November 7, at the Mercury Mall and will stay there to greet children until December 24.
Money raised from the event will go towards children’s charity First Step, Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, and Saint Francis Hospice in Havering-atte-Bower.
