Santa Claus has agreed a partnership with Spanish banking goliath Santander to launch a new or nearly-new toy swap in branches for chocolate coins.

The chocolate toy swap shop will open its doors from the 5 December to the 23 December and will donate all toys to children’s charities.

Toy collection boxes or red sacks will be available in each branch and donated to local charities or a partnership with In Kind Direct, who will distribute the gifts onwards.

Santander’s intermediary key account team is also promoting the campaign to its panels and collecting from brokers keen to take part.

The social media campaign is being supported by Jessica Ennis and Jenson Button and promoted on Facebook and YouTube.

Contact the intermediary team and make a child happy this Christmas.
