Santa visits cancelled, PKF steps in

The hearts of children have been broken after a provider of Santa Claus tours
prepared for administration, with PKF taking control of the business.

The firm has been appointed to Finlandia Travel Agency, widely known as
Nortours, which has provided Santa Claus Tour programmes for more than 20 years.

The business has 12 employees and has operated on £9m turnover.

Philip Long, head of corporate recovery at PKF, said: ‘Christmas is an awful
time for any business to go into administration and the nature of Nortours’s
product – Santa Claus tours – makes this administration all the more upsetting
not only for the staff, but also for the families who will have been expecting
to fly off to visit Santa in the next few days.’

Although the trips are cancelled, all holidaymakers are expected to receive a
full refund.
