Santa toured the streets around Dingwall and Conon Bridge and Maryburgh again this year, .
He still had to abide by a few covid restrictions such as not dispensing sweets and restricting access to the sleigh, but he was glad to be back.
This event is organised by Dingwall Rotary Club members and all donations collected will be deposited in the Club's charity account. Although our main aim is to provide that magic moment for the little ones when Santa stops in their street to wave and say hello, we are also grateful for any donations we receive. Rest assured that the money you donated amounting to £1280 will be used throughout the year for very many good local causes, including activities and requests from the children and young people within our area.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to both Tesco and Lidl for allowing Santa to park the sleigh in their forecourts so that we could dispense Christmas cheer to all their customer; and especially to the children.
We used the Sleigh Tracker for the first time this year. There were a few teething troubles that will be cured for next year, but it worked very well and many of you used it to check our progress through the streets.
We want to thank everyone for their generous donations and for bringing the children along to talk to the red suited man. For our volunteers who braved the cold and sometimes the rain to escort him around, it made us very happy to see the smiles of delight on the childrens faces.
Have a very Merry Chrismas and a good New year ---- from Dingwall Rotary Club
