Santa will be reading the letters live, gifting some special few their Christmas wishes live which will be signed, sealed and delivered before Christmas.

As well as this, The Treat Tree game will be launched on the F&B app. Each day in the run up to Christmas, the tree will open a treat bauble which will share a special Christmas gift for F&B customers. The treats include influencer Christmas hacks, discounts, mini games to win and Facebook Live Santa.

To celebrate Christmas this year, we have launched ‘The Treat Tree’ on our app offering chances to win special prizes, festive tips from influencers and special discounts every day in the lead up to Christmas. We are also including a live stream with Santa on Facebook to make some Christmas wishes come true for our Frankie and Benny’s families.”
