Visit Santa at Belfast's Continental Christmas Market & Help Pretty 'n' Pink

Christmas is well and truly under way with last weekend marking the start of the season with Belfast's Christmas lights officially switched on. This week all around the country lights switch on and Christmas markets open to the masses. The infamous Belfast Continental Christmas Market is already here and is open right through to 22nd December. 

Inside the market you'll find an array of food, drinks and all manor of unique items. You'll also find Santa himself! Each year Santa is a unique part of Belfast's Continental Christmas Market. What you might not know is that each year the Lord Mayor's Charity of the year is responsible for all things Santa related and it's the chosen charity who will be hosting Santa and his elves for everyone who visits.

This year that charity is one that is close to my own heart and one which we ensure to support throughout the entire year when we can. A unique charity here since they are the only registered Breast Cancer charity in Northern Ireland! Pretty 'n' Pink started over a decade ago in 2006 by the founder Noleen Adair. An inspirational woman who despite battling cancer herself still campaigned and fund-raised with her small team of volunteers for Pretty 'n' Pink. The charity helps women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families through the funds raised. These funds can be used to help take the financial strain that breast cancer diagnosis can put on people and their families. It can provide home heating, travel expenses, clothing, mortgage or rent payments, specialist bra's or swimwear and even for adapting homes to meet their new needs. The funds can also be used to provide additional therapies for patients too. 

Pretty 'n' Pink is the Lord Mayors charity of the year and this year they've helped Santa to embrace all things pink as well as red. Santa's hut is decorated in a style that is festive, fun and very Pink. Which is only fitting since we are talking about Pretty 'n' Pink. 

Santa, his elves and his helpers from Pretty 'n' Pink are going to be working hard the whole way through the end of November and into December. They will be on hand to ensure Santa is available for all the children and families who will visit Belfast's Continental Christmas Market this year by opening every day. 

You will be able to visit Santa and his team during these opening hours:

Monday - 3pm to 6pm
Tuesday - 3pm to 6pm
Wednesday - 3pm to 6pm
Thursday - 12pm - 7pm
Friday - 12pm - 7pm

The whole experience will stand out and be remembered by all I'm sure.
