WE are a generous lot here at the Hartlepool Mail.
As it is Christmas we have decided to extend the deadline for our annual Dear Santa contest.
It gives our younger readers more time to submit their entries in our £1,000 prize competition.
The money will be divided equally between four winners in good time to be spent before December 25.
All youngsters have to do is complete the entry form on this page and send it to the Hartlepool Mail by first thing next Monday morning.
Just tell us why you think you should win £250 courtesy of waste management and recycling specialist Niramax.
Perhaps you have been poorly this year and need cheering up?
Maybe it is a relative who has been ill and you have helped look after them?
Or perhaps you have carried out a good deed on someone else’s behalf?
Whatever your story, we want to hear it. The best entries will appear in a supplement in the Mail later next week.
Remember to include a non-returnable photo and send your completed form to Dear Santa, the Hartlepool Mail, New Clarence House, Wesley Square, Hartlepool, TS24 8BX.
