LapLand UK 2011

My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures were able to arrange with LapLand UK a free day for British Army children with a parent deployed this Christmas.

We sent 4 families who had a great day! They made the special journey to LapLand UK, helped the toy factory elves and also met all of Father Christmas's friends including the elves, reindeer, husky dogs and of course Mother Christmas who showed the children how to decorate gingerbread!

Finally and most importantly they got to meet the man himself at his snowy woodland home where he had a special gift for every child.

Everyone had a great day, one mummy says: "A very big thank you from us for the tickets for Lapland UK we had a great time, George loved it"

Thank you to LapLand UK and hopefully we will see you next year for more festive fun!

    Well done to all at Lapland UK for giving soldiers children this opportunity to have a wonderful day out. George who is 4 misses his Daddy a lot while he is serving in Afghanistan and its activities like this that help so much.
