ELVES and reindeer helped entertain children at a charity’s Christmas party.

The Dream Factory, which grants wishes to youngsters with life-limiting conditions, entertained 70 children during its party at Mooro’s restaurant in Abridge Road, Chigwell.

Miss Santas and Father Christmas also joined the party, where supporters of the charity – comedian Terry Alderton, former world boxing champion Colin McMillan and TV presenter Lisa Nash – were also among the guests.

The charity’s founder Avril Mills said: “It was a fantastic day for the ‘dream’ children and my thanks go to everyone who helped make the event such a success.”
