Santa Claus made a surprise visit to the last Scatter Club get-together of 2018, which was held on the later-than-usual date of Saturday 22 December at the Diocesan Hall in Trim.
Despite the pressures of the season, Santa had gifts for all the children in attendance and was very impressed by the children’s warm welcome.
Santa thankfully made it back to the North Pole just in time for the big day, which saw him visit the homes of 2.1 billion children across the world!
