WHEN eight year old Theo Gibson was told before Christmas that he was not on Santa’s nice list he set about being a good boy and helping other people.
He swept leaves, hoovered and cleaned windows and cars as he raised money for charity.
In total he raised £40 in two weeks to pay for a goat and a football kit for African children.
After all that hard work just before Christmas Day the St Joseph’s pupil received another message from Santa Claus telling him he had been such a good boy he had worked his way on to the nice list.
Consequently Theo had a perfect Christmas and received the electric guitar he asked for.
His family were very proud of his efforts in helping other people, saying: “We went online and used this programme to send Theo a personalised message from Father Christmas telling him he wasn’t on the good list.
“He was really shocked, took it very seriously and decided he was going to do something about it.
“He worked really hard and gave up his time. We are all so proud of him. We then sent another message saying he had made it onto the good list.”
