Santa Claus is all set for his proposed annual tour of Spalding.
His friends at the Spalding with South Holland Rotary Club have once again organised him to tour the streets of Spalding from Thursday, December 3.
He’ll be driven round as many streets as possible through December and also visiting Hall Place, Morrisons in Pinchbeck and the Holbeach Road Lidl at times.
There will be slight differences as in-line with government guidelines Santa will be remaining on his sleigh at all times and there will be less volunteers who won’t be handing out sweets and knocking on doors.
They will stil be collecting for the Rotary charity work but the good news is you can donate anytime anywhere through the new text to donate service.
You can text NOEL 5 to 70480 to donate five pounds. Change the 5 to whatever number you wish to donate any other amount e.g. NOEL 1 or NOEL 3 to donate £1 or £3.
Remember you need the bill payer’s permission.
Texts will cost your standard network charge plus the cost of your donation.
A spokesman for the Rotary Club, said: “Santa’s sleigh is ready to make its way around Spalding with South Holland Rotary members and helpers from other organisations trying to visit as many streets as possible during December.
“Already 2020 has been unusual, to say the least, so, inevitably there will be changes to what we can safely do to provide a bit of seasonal cheer.
“It is especially important this year that we will be able to raise funds for our continuing charitable activities helping local groups and Charities and other deserving causes, so we have set up a Text to Donate system.
“We are always grateful for the support we get from the generous people of Spalding.
“South Holland Rotarians with Santa and all our helpers are hoping for good weather in December and we wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Season of Good Will and an especially healthy and successful new year.
“Let us hope we can put the troubles of 2020 behind us and look forward to a bright future.”
