The group of more than 20 young people were entertained at the executive Eurojet terminal at Birmingham Airport, before taking to the skies in Cello’s VIP BAE 146.
A flight from Birmingham of more than an hour took the group to the Scottish borders and included some breathtaking views of Blackpool and the tower.
Youngsters along with parents, guardians and other helpers had a snack on the aircraft and then were joined by the big man in red who distributed presents both on board and on the return to Eurojet.
The group of deserving young people included children from the Acorns charity, Help Harry Help Others, Birmingham Young Carers and Malachi – a charity that works with families facing crisis.
Also on board were competition winners nominated by The Birmingham Mail and Sunday Mercury newspapers.
Taking part were two children from a family with close ties to the airport who sadly lost their mum to cancer earlier in the year.
The event was made possible by Cello Aviation supported by a number of businesses including Arvin Aviation, Birmingham Airport, Shell, Gourmet Food, The Character Group and akpr.
“It was wonderful and we hope the youngsters had a great start to Christmas and went home with some lovely memories – I know that we did. This was a great team effort.” said Vince Essex, Cello’s Commercial Manager.
