An “inclusive Santa’s grotto” has returned to Leicestershire, thanks to a Leicester startup founder. CEO Callum McKeefery had the idea for it after his son Callum son was unable to experience a visit from Santa in a safe way.

Hudson has a rare Mitochondrial Disease, which means the 5-year old can find loud environments and bright lights distressing.

This year the grotto has a new location at 1 Charnwood Drive, Leicester Forest East, Leicester LE3 3HL and it already has 1300 children registered to attend.

The grotto is completely free and funded by the Mckeefery Family, volunteers and sponsors.

Callum is also selling Christmas trees to raise money for Menphys.
