SANTA popped in to Hammersmith to pick up presents donated by the community before delivering them to sick children.
Father Christmas took a break from his busy schedule to make a pit-stop at Access Self-Storage, in Shepherd’s Bush Road, on Friday morning.
The company appealed for the public to donate new and unused presents and has been inundated with generous gifts over the past six weeks for Imperial College Healthcare Charity.
The result was a treasure trove of festive goodies including a television, books, toys, remote control cars and clothes donated by fashion designer Julien Macdonald.
They will now be packed on to Santa’s sleigh and whisked off to St Mary’s Hospital, in Paddington, and handed out to children on its paediatric ward.
Carol Taylor, fundraising director at Imperial College Healthcare Charity, said: “We want to say a huge thank-you to everyone who has donated.
“We have been overwhelmed with the generosity and the children are going to love all the gifts.”
Councillor Frances Stainton, borough mayor, said: “This has been a wonderful initiative by Access and the response from local people has been outstanding.”
