Father Christmas and his Sleigh
The Rotary Club of Holmes Chapel, and before us Round Table, has been organising the Christmas Sleigh run for many years. Over three weeks, we take Father Christmas on his sleigh to all areas of Holmes Chapel, Goostrey, Cranage, Allostock, Brereton and Somerford, to meet the children. We are helped by teams from various village groups (Scouts, Guides. Fire Cadets etc.) who take the sleigh out for one or more nights each.
With the increase in housing, it has become most difficult to maintain the schedule with the teams we have. Without more help, we will have to reduce the coverage and exclude some districts. Are you an organisation that could run the sleigh for an evening (5.30 until 8.30)? You will need a driver (and vehicle with tow-bar) and at least 6 collectors. Contribution to the community is in itself rewarding, but may also be a means of raising funds for your group.
