Last chance to send your Dear Santa letters

TIME is running out to enter the Hartlepool Mail’s annual Dear Santa contest.

On offer from sponsor Niramax is a share of £1,000 in cash to spend on presents.

All entrants – aged 16 and under – have to do is either complete the application form on this page or provide the required information in an email with their family’s permission.

You can also download a copy of the form HERE.

What we want to know by this Friday is why you deserve a share of this year’s prizes.

Perhaps you have helped others less fortunate than yourself or looked after a poorly friend or relative. Maybe it is you who has suffered health problems and need cheering up.

Please include a non-returnable photograph – clearly marking on the back who the entrant is if the snap includes more than one person – with postal entries.

Emailed letters also need to have a picture attached.

Four lucky winners will each receive £250 in time to spend before the big day.

The winners’ families must agree to be interviewed and allow their child’s photo to be taken at a presentation ceremony at the Mail’s offices.

Usual Mail competition rules apply and are available on request.

Just one final reminder – don’t forget to attach your picture.
