#PositiveSWBrum Christmas can be overwhelming for some people with additional needs. The extra effort made by this Santa & Elf in Sainsbury’s Longbridge today meant that instead of having a meltdown, Abigail (4) really enjoyed seeing them!
Well done to these fundraisers, representing Alvechurch based homelessness & addiction recovery charity Betel UK – HQ! ❤️🎄
From Ruth: “🎅🏼🎅🏼Thank you very much to “Santa” and the “Elf” at Longbridge Sainsbury’s this morning.
“Thank you for taking the time to speak my little girl and making the effort to sign makaton.
“Christmas is a really over stimulating time for people with additional needs and I thought she was going to have a total meltdown down when she saw you.
A special of group of mommy and daddies will understand.
“So thank you very much elf and Santa. Abigail aged 4 with a Downs Syndrome was delighted to see you. Merry Christmas to all your staff I’ll be writing to head off to thank the store. ☃️⛄️❄️⛄️☃️”
