PRESTATYN ROTARY CHRISTMAS FLOAT 2020
This year, we are supporting 3 local Charities, St Kentigern's hospice, Prestatyn and Meliden Foodbank, and Prestatyn Childline.
As long as Covid-19 regulations don't change drastically, we will be taking the float out and about this December. But it will be operating very differently from previous years. On the mobile runs, around the your streets, Father Christmas will have to stay on the float at all times. As you know he is very old, but as he hasn't had the vaccine yet he's very sorry that he won't be able to talk to the children this year, nor will he be giving out sweets. So please let your children know that Santa will just be driving past slowly and waving to them from the float. Santa's Rotary helpers will be walking along with the float, and to make sure we all keep safe from the virus, they will have collecting tins on poles! So any coins you can give will be gratefully received on behalf of our charities this year, which are St Kentigern's Hospice, Childline (Prestatyn) and the Prestatyn and Meliden Foodbank. Our float will also be static on three occasions and again, it will be a little different from past years. Santa will stay on the float at all times. He'll be able to talk to children but they will have to keep at least 2 metres away. His Rotary helpers will be there to ensure everyone keeps safe and there will be a collecting bucket if you'd like to make a donation. This has been such a difficult year for everyone, and while Christmas might not be completely as normal, we really wanted to spread festive cheer and try and raise some money for good causes. Here are the provisional dates for 2020. Look out for our daily posts nearer the time which will have more detail, and a special surprise for your children to see.
