The festive spirit was present at the Ponteland branch of Dobbies during an event to mark the arrival of Santa at the firm’s stores.
There was a big turnout for the fund-raiser in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Volunteers from the charity attended, along with the Dobbie reindeer.
The garden centre was also the venue for a hugely successful Ladies’ Night, which was filled with pampering and beauty tips.
Proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust – Dobbies’ Christmas charity partner.
Shoppers can support the charity by donating £1 for a wish tree bauble on the store’s festive tree.
