Christmas Wishes for Every County

Posted on in WHAT'S ON with 8 Comments

To spread a little Christmas cheer to every corner of the UK, this year we’re getting in the spirit of giving by delivering Sanctuary goodies to one team, group or charity in every county!

We’ll be keeping track of our progress over the Christmas season by turning this map orange as we reach each county.
