As Christmas approaches and children everywhere get more and more excited at the prospect of waking up to presents on Christmas morning, it’s sad to hear that more and more children in and around Grantham face the very real prospect of receiving no Christmas gift this year as their family suffers financial hardship.
This Christmas will see more festive magic at the Palace Theatre as Aladdin flies into town.
