Forget X-Factor....this is the Christmas Fun Factor!

THE FUN of Christmas was wrapped up perfectly in a children’s party held by a Hucknall group of fundraising parents.

Fun Factor, which collects money to organise activities for local children, laid on the bash at the Talk Of The Town social club at Hucknall Town Football Club’s Watnall Road ground.

Guest of honour was Santa Claus, who chatted with more than 100 children and presented each with a gift of a selection box.

Santa’s helping elf for the day was parent Pete Gough, who pulled on a costume as a last-minute volunteer.

The sellout event also featured a disco and food. A raffle, which included prizes donated by local businesses, collected £100 for the group’s coffers.

Amy Green, of Fun Factor, said: “It was fantastic. We were overwhelmed with the response.

“We only decided to do this two weeks ago but we ended up turning families away.”
