The North Pole is full of cheer as Santa helps blind and partially sighted children receive festive letters.

For more than 20 years, the elves and fairies at RNIB have helped Santa with hundreds of letters – they love opening the mail and reading about what children have been up to and the things they would like for Christmas. They then help Santa send out his replies in the children’s preferred reading formats.
