FACE – Lapland Trip 2023

This year’s Lapland Trip on Saturday 10th December 2023 was amazingly the 29th time FACE had taken children & families impacted by cancer to meet Santa Claus in Lapland.

Christmas can be such a difficult time for people as they cope with the loss of a loved one and the FACE team do everything they can to make the experience special for those travelling with us.

It was a wonderful day spent playing in the snow, being towed by reindeer & huskies and visiting an Ice Palace. This was before the magical visit to meet Santa Claus in his cabin deep in the forest.

It is a day which means so much and these kind words say it all.

“The trip was so magical..….…..since losing my wife , the thought of making new memories has been so hard. The memories of Lapland will stay with us forever.

“Thank you again for such an incredible day everyone made it so special”

“Muchas gracias all the FACE team for such a wonderful and amazing day. Thank you for doing something so magical and special not only for the children but for the parents as well”

“The FACE team you are so lovely and made the day so very special for us all. The most precious memories for us.”

“Thank you so much all the team for such a special day… it’s all about making memories and we definitely made many yesterday.”

The FACE team would like to thank Canterbury Travel, Edinburgh Airport, Jet2 and Caffè Nero for doing so much to help make our Lapland Trip a wonderful experience. Special thanks to Santa for taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet everyone and for the kind gifts to give children who are visiting family in hospital at Christmas.
