CHILDREN can get a free gift from Santa by visiting a Stourport shop this Saturday.

Thomas & Parkes DIY shop, based in Minster Road, will be holding a free Santa Meet and Greet day on December 14 from 9am to 5pm.

Father Christmas will be meeting with children and his elves will be on hand to ensure every child receives a gift.

The store will be collecting donations for KEMP Hospice during the event.

Store manager Nikki Shipton said: "Time has flown since we opened in September and business has been good, so we wanted to say thank you to the local community for their support, which has been amazing.”

She added: "We’re proud to be local and we support the community as and when we can, so come along and enjoy this festive, fun family event!”
