We received a very strange thank you letter today through the post from someone called "Yolly" thanking us for "DVD's and pen's" [sic] . The only thing is that I only know one Yolly who is in her 20s and would definitely not put an errant apostrophe in the word "pens"....and we didn't buy anyone pens (or "pen's") for Christmas.

We also got a thank you card from a baby whose parents had preprinted some cards saying "thank you for your gift(s)" which felt a tad....well....impersonal.

I suppose though that the NSPCC can be excused for their use of the bracket in their thank you letter!

We'd like to say a huge thank you for requesting a Letter from Santa from the NSPCC. We hope the letter(s) added some extra magic this Christmas for the child or children in your life. We're delighted to announce that, by requesting your letter, you have helped us in raising £1.7 million.

Your support means that we can continue our vital work protecting many vulnerable children and young people, through services such as ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline. Between Christmas Eve and 4 January, ChildLine received over 48,500 contacts by telephone, email and online chat. Every £20 raised by Letter from Santa will help us to respond to another five children who contact us.

If you would like to find out more about the NSPCC and our work with children, you can visit our website www.nspcc.org.uk. If you have an enquiry or any feedback about Letter from Santa, please email us at santa@nspcc.org.uk.

Thank you so much for your support and best wishes for 2012.

  1. That's great news about the total the NSPCC made. It's great to see your still doing so much for charities, despite being a new mum.xx
