Community/Vocational Service/ The Christmas Sleigh Collections, December 2015
Collections at Sainsbury's in Fareham
IT’S SLEIGH TIME!We’ve done up our Christmas sleigh so it's ready for action!
It will be visiting Sainsbury’s, Broadcut, Fareham, ASDA in Newgate Lane & Makro at Locks Heath. Santa’s elves (= our club members in red hats!) will be collecting money for local organisations.
The 1st Catisfield Scout Group will also be taking to the streets of Fareham with it – they have much younger legs than us & so can keep up with it!
Do look out for us and help us raise money for local projects – last year we raised £3000!
Sleigh in action yesterday at Sainsbury’s, Broadcut, Fareham! Our new Santa turned a lot of heads – mostly those under 2 years old! We had two £10 notes and one £5 even in my own 2 hour stint! A big thank you to all those happy shoppers who filled up our boxes!
It looked even better in the dark, with the lights twinkling and the carols singing out! One 3/4 year old when asked what he wanted Santa to bring him paused for a moment and said “a big snowball fight!” That’s going to be a bit of a challenge for him round here……!
6th Bit wet today but Santa still going strong! Luckily, Sainsbury’s let us stand in the foyer….
Our happy Santa’s elves with full collecting boxes….
I will get this in …… success! A happy contributor with our Sleigh Supremo John (we seem to have a lot of Johns organising things….)
Another satisfied customer gets her donation in!
Another successful day draws to a close – thank you Sainsbury’s!
