WIN | Be Santa's Helper for the Day


Kick off the festive season with The Trinity Centre’s annual Santa & Reindeer Parade with support from Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council, taking place on Sunday 26th November ahead of Aberdeen City Council’s light switch on.

Santa and his Reindeer will be in town offering an afternoon full of Christmas magic for kids and adults alike. The fun starts at the Castlegate at 12pm - a host of special guests including Santa’s Reindeer, from The Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, will be there to welcome you! Plus Santa Claus will be handing out free goodies to all children who visit him in the centre after the parade.

But, Santa can’t pull his sleigh and hand out gifts alone – Back by popular demand The Trinity Centre will be selecting two children to be Santa’s helpers on the day. The winners will get the chance to be in Santa's Sleigh for the duration of the parade and be able to help Santa hand out free gifts for to the children - a real life elf! 

To enter simply go to any of our social media channels or fill in our contact form on our website and let us know whether your child has made it onto the Naughty or Nice list and tell us your reasons why. The more interesting story the better. The winner will be selected by November the 15th by retailers and management to ensure fairness.

Good luck!
