SANTA’S CHRISTMAS TOUR OF CORSHAM AND CHIPPENHAM 2017

Look out children, Santa’s magic is on its way again.

Plans are now well advanced for Chippenham Lions Christmas fund raising activities - the centrepiece of which is the 2017 Grand Tour of Chippenham and Corsham with Santa aboard our Carol Float.

Santa’s float generally gets underway just after 6pm each evening, and continues its tour up to about 9pm. This year the tour starts on Saturday 2nd December in Corsham and reaches Chippenham from Thursday 7th where Santa visits a significant proportion of the residents.

As well as that, we will also be delivering Christmas dinners to those alone - especially the elderly - and we will make sure that we have time for a chat and to reminisce with them; especially with those who would otherwise not see anybody else on the big day.

You may also meet us at the Christmas Light switch-on for both Corsham and Chippenham where we will be selling mulled wine.

We really hope to ‘Bring glad tidings of goodwill and good cheer’ to the neighbourhoods we visit and that you will give generously to collectors to help us to help those in need in our community and in the wider world. In particular, we know just how much people look forward to the carol float visits.  So, mums, dads and little ones, you can expect Santa to follow the schedule below so look out for him on these evenings in December.

We will endeavour to reach the many scheduled places as we can, but we will have to respond to any adverse weather, access or turning problems.

All of the money raised will be going to a number of charities; local, national and international and, last year, the Christmas activities raised just over £12,000 and we hope to do as well again this year.  As in previous years, we are very grateful to the principal and students of Lackham College for the loan of the tractor and trailer.
