Santa has accepted our invitation to visit Dingwall and Conon Bridge

Santa has accepted our invitation to visit the streets of Dingwall and Conon Bridge again this year.

This event is organised by the 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 donate 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 can dispense Christmas cheer to all their customers and especially to the children.  Tesco and Lidl are as always very generous in their donations of sweets for the children and we are extremely gratefull for these gifts..

We are using the sleigh tracker again this year. It worked very well last year and many of you used it to check our progress through the streets. Simply download the Sleigh Tracker app to your phone/tablet etc. and when open, click on "I want to see where Santa is". (make sure that you download the Rotary/Round Table app)
