Multiflight helped Santa earlier this week and made it a Christmas to remember for children and their families at the Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa.

Multiflight and Leeds Bradford Airport joined forces again this year to provide a helicopter and presents for a special treat for the children and their families.

Multiflight provided a Dauphin helicopter from its fleet of charter helicopters for the special Christmas flight to the hospice. Leeds Bradford Airport provided the presents for the children at the hospice and their siblings.

Children and parents along with hospice staff welcomed Santa as he disambarked from the helicopter. There were smiles all round as the children met Santa and received their presents.

“It’s such a wonderful day for the children, their families and the staff at the hospice. It’s a special Christmas treat for them and Multiflight is delighted to be able to do this,” said Linda Nicholls, Multiflight’s charter manager.

Sheila O’Leary, head of care at Martin House Children’s Hospice, said “Santa arriving in his helicopter is one of the most magical visits to Martin House. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved.”

Martin House Children’s Hospice provides care for children and young people with progressive life limiting illnesses and provides support to their families. A visit to the hospice by Santa in a helicopter is a wonderful and special event for the children and their families and a memory they can treasure.
