Father Christmas, schoolchildren, a pop choir and a brass band have joined festive forces to entertain the Woodford community and raise money for charity.
All ages were catered for at Redrow’s Woodford Garden Village venture with mince pies aplenty and mulled wine for the adults, while children were able to meet Santa along with Redrow’s mascots Buster and Buddy. All proceeds have been pledged to Millie’s Trust, a charity which aims to make first aid training accessible to all.
The ‘Woodford Winter Wonderland’ event was complemented with a backdrop of traditional songs and carols, courtesy of the children from Lostock Primary School, The Hazel Grove Brass Band and The Northwich Pop Choir.
The festivities were attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport Cllr Chris Gordon and Dr Margaret Gordon as well as local families who were able to sneak a peek at Redrow’s beautiful Heritage Collection homes at Woodford Garden Village and chat to existing residents.
Shaun Sumner, construction director for Redrow Homes (NW) said: “It was fantastic to be able to welcome Father Christmas and all of the wonderful entertainers to Woodford. The show home village was an incredible backdrop to the event and we hope everyone had a great time. For those thinking of buying here they would have perhaps been able to glimpse into their Christmas future.
“All of the proceeds from the event will go to Millie’s Trust, chosen for the fabulous work it does both locally and nationally.”
Joanne Thompson, who set up the charity with her husband Dan after their nine-month old daughter Millie tragically passed away after a choking incident at nursery, said: “We’re delighted that Redrow has chosen Millie’s Trust to raise money for. It was great to see so many people turnout for the event and our mascot Georgie the Giraffe got on very well with Buster and Buddy!”
For those wishing to carry on the Christmas magic after the event, Redrow currently has a range of four and five-bedroom homes on sale in the sought-after location.
