Two of Yorkshire’s Championship winning batsmen, Adam Lyth and Jack Leaning, attended the ‘Search for Santa’ event on Wednesday 2nd December.
Over 150 children, their carers and parents from across Yorkshire took to the skies on a special Santa flight courtesy of Leeds Bradford Airport and Monarch. This specially organised flight in ‘Search of Santa’ marked the start of Christmas celebrations for some incredible children.
To ensure there was truly a Christmas party atmosphere, the airport’s Yorkshire Premier Lounge was transformed with magicians, face painters, balloon modellers who entertained youngsters from 10 children’s charities and hospices across the region, before boarding their flight.
During the one hour flight the wide-eyed and eager youngsters were delighted to find that Santa was on board and surprised the young guests by joining them for a Christmas sing-a-long, giving Rudolph and his fellow reindeer the day off!
We would like to thank Club partners, Multiflight, for the opportunity to invite children and their families from the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation and Yorkshire Cancer Research to attend the event and mark the start of the festive period.
