Christmas has come early for one lucky little girl, after searching high and low to find Santa’s six missing elves hiding around the Dolphin Shopping Centre. Not only did seven year old Natasha Hendry, from Blandford Forum, win £250 worth of goodies, she was presented them by the ever-so grateful Santa Claus who thanked her for her help.

Natasha’s mum, Sharon said: “Natasha had such fun finding all of Santa’s missing elves around the Dolphin Shopping Centre and it really helped take the boredom out of Christmas shopping for her. She had found all but one when we were ready to leave but she was adamant that she had to keep looking for the last one!”

Natasha received prizes from the following retailers:

Ollies Playland – two entry vouchers

Beales – £100 vouchers

Prizes from HMV

Early Learning Centre – game

Thorntons – a selection of chocolate goodies

Fun Learning – a game

One lucky winner
