JIMMY TICKLE’S CHRISTMAS

Jimmy Tickle’s Christmas is a heartwarming story that shows how one act of kindness can change the world.

Little Jimmy Tickle is the sweetest, kindness little boy who has a lot to contend with.

He is an extraordinary young boy, and whilst there was no-one to feel proud of him, as such, had there been someone, they would have been very proud indeed.

His Christmas wish each year is for his father to come home. Then a late-night visitor arrives on Christmas Eve. Rather than Santa Claus, Jimmy discovers a man desperate to get a present for his children. Jimmy chats to him and shares what little he has with the man.

News of the kindness spreads and Jimmy Tickle has the kind of Christmas he has longed for. The story ends in tears…of joy.

Jimmy Tickle’s Christmas shines a festive light on how compassion and positivity can overcome adversity.
