NOMINATIONS are now up and running for the Troon Secret Santa campaign.

Organisers are looking for people to put forward the names of youngsters who deserve a gift from the main man of the moment.

This is the fifth year that Secret Santa has been part of the run up to Christmas.

This event was started by Troon local Campbell Malone, who now lives in New Zealand and who has been tirelessly supported from year two by Caroline Goodall Cummings.

Around 1,000 Troon children receive a gift from Santa each year delivered to their house.

The event is free, all you have to do is nominate your children to Troon Secret Santa by messaging Caroline Goodall Cummings on the Secret Santa Facebook page. Donation points for Troon locals to drop in selection boxes are now open, all details are on the Secret Santa Facebook page. Deliveries are starting on Friday, December 7.

The Troon Secret Santa team of Caroline, Diane Ferguson and Campbell are very grateful to all the Troon families and businesses for donating Christmas gifts to allow the campaign to continue, and for the volunteer Santas who brave the cold and rain in December to deliver gifts to the children of Troon.

Donations are still welcome.
