Hilton London Stansted kindly hosted our 5th Christmas lunch for local Panathlon schools today.

50 children and 25 support staff from 7 schools attended the ‘Harry Potter’ themed party which included the ‘sorting hat’, wand lessons and magic spells. One school, Arbour Vale, our Southern regional champions travelled all the way from Slough.

A full Christmas lunch was served, once again kindly provided by Hilton London Stansted who have provided their facilities for the 5th year in a row.

We also had an extra special visit from Father Christmas, who flew in direct from the North Pole to Stansted Airport, with presents for everybody.

One of the children declared “It is the best day of my life!”

Christmas carols were sung before departure and this one featured Logan from Southview on lead vocal…
