Reindeer missing in The Mall!

Santa is sending out an SOS after his reindeer escaped in The Mall Blackburn!

The nine naughty reindeer are scattered across the shopping centre and can be found making mischief in the windows of some of the stores.

Rumour has it that they have been seen calling the North Pole on a mobile phone, trying on jewellery, popping on pyjamas and partaking in a coffee or two! 

Children can collect a map from stands around The Mall and help to get the reindeer back to Santa in time for Christmas Eve.  All they need to do is enter their names and locations on the Secret Santa portal on The Mall’s website here:

Every child that takes part will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Mall Gift Cards.

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “Those pesky reindeer have been causing some real bother in The Mall and we need to get them back to Santa in time for Christmas.

“Helping to find them is a great, socially distanced way to get into the festive spirit for our little shoppers and I am sure, as always, they will do us proud!

“Of course, due to restrictions, we cannot host our usual magical grotto, but we hope that children enjoy getting involved in this activity instead.”

Please note: The Secret Santa portal will be live from Friday 10th December.
