Santa went on his usual round in the Seaburn, Fulwell and Roker areas.

 Monday 13th December - South of Dykelands Road from Dene Lane to Dunmore Avenue.

Tuesday 14th December - East of Newcastle Road and Shields Road, north from Seaburn Station, including all the streets off Alston Crescent.

Wednesday 15th December - East of Dovedale Road from Keswick Avenue to Grizedale Court.

Thursday 16th December - South of Neale St between Roker Park Road and Mansfield Crescent.

Friday 17th December - South Bents Estate.

Whilst the weather was cold, Santa managed to visit all the streets in the re-scheduled route, much to the delight of many of the children he saw.  The parents were most generous in their giving and we are very grateful to all our supporters.
