Christmas 2016 Latest News.....|
That's it.... all done. A great year and many thanks to all who helped make it so.
The people of Dronfield are always generous and we are amazed at the way the towns residents support us with their donations to the sleigh.
It is all in a good cause. The donations collected by the sleigh help to support a wide range of community projects in
Dronfield, and international projects world wide.
Dronfield Rotary Club is greatful for the help given by a small group of community-minded people who provide support, to keep the Sleigh successful. Help is always required so, if you (and/or family members aged 18 or over) can give assistance in 2016 you would be very welcome. If you would like to be involved, please contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org Please visit our club web site click here
The sleigh needed some rebuilding this year with new sections welded into the chassis and new tyres. We are grateful to Food Fabrications Ltd who carried out the welding at no charge and Hawleys Tyres who provided new tyres at no charge.

Rotarian Andy Ledbetter said: It is something that the children look forward to. It is a magical event. Children run to their front doors and windows, mesmerised by the music and waiting to catch their first glimpse of the sleigh. Seeing the delight and wonder on the faces people is a delight for all the volunteers who help to run the sleigh.
It is all in a good cause. The donations collected by the Rotary Club during Santas Sleigh help to support a wide range of community projects in Dronfield, and international projects world wide.
