Meet the Grinch at our special charity play sessions


The Grass Hoppers team at both Tong and Tingley Garden Centres have launched ‘Grinchmas’ playtime parties as part of our fundraising campaign for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.


The parties take place at Tong Garden Centre at 4.30 pm on 13th December and at the same time at Tingley on 14th December. Tickets cost £15.95 and include an hour and three quarters’ play time, a meet and greet with the Grinch and his elves, access to the disco room, food and a toy of the child’s choice.


“We’re very excited to introduce these unique party sessions as part of our family festive programme this year. Not only do children get to experience great play, but they’re also helping us to reach our fundraising target of £19,000 for this year,” said Caroline Ellis, Group Play Manager.


“Thank you to RMS Toys, Padgetts Toys, Potts Bakery and Atlantic Workwear for their generous donations that mean that we have more money to donate to Yorkshire Air Ambulance.”
