I JUST want to give a big pat on the back to the team at the St Helens Young Carers Centre for creating such a magical Christmas grotto in their building on Cotham Street.

We took along our two boys at the weekend and was thrilled by the wonderful winter wonderland they have created inside.

If you want a lovely festive trip – and help raise money for a good cause at the same time – I would highly recommend it.
