TAMWORTH Round Table and Rotary Club of Tamworth have announced their routes for their annual charity Santa Sleigh collections, and this year it begins on 4th December.
This years routes will run for over two weeks and take the team right up to Monday December 22. As an added bonus this year, as well as taking their sleigh around the streets, Tamworth Round Table will also be giving you the opportunity to visit them, with static locations in the Town Centre, Odeon Cinema, Toys R us and Morrisons.
All of the persons involved on the charity sleighs, from Santa and Rudolph to his his collector Elf’s are all volunteers who give up their free time to raise money for local charities. Because of this the routes have to be limited due to the amount of time they can give, between other commitments and children going to bed. Some roads and streets are also out of bounds to Santa and his sleigh due to the size of the vehicles used.
Money collected from the Santa Sleigh Collection is distributed to local charities who can apply throughout the year for funds.
So here they are; you better watch out and you better not cry, this is when you can see Santa with either Tamworth Round Table or Rotary Club of Tamworth.
