ALMOST £5,000 has been raised for Barnsley Hospital's Tiny Hearts Appeal by the Alhambra's Christmas festivities.

The centre welcomed more than 1,500 children into its Santa's Grotto and 4D sleigh ride experience.

Alhambra’s marketing manager, Steph Higham said: "As a company we choose a local charity to support every year and given the great work the hospital does for the local community, we hope that our donations will help them continue to do so and help with the new baby unit.”
