The Wirksworth Rotary Santa Sleigh proved once again very popular in the run-up to Christmas 2019, giving local children the chance to see Santa and to help raise funds for the various good causes and local charities which the club supports. 

Our collections raised over £2,000 and our thanks go to everyone for their generous donations, to the management and staff of the Wirksworth Co-op store and Sainsbury's in Matlock for their hospitality and support, and to all members, partners and friends for their help in organising and running the Santa Sleigh programme. 

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to run our Santa Sleigh over the 2020 Christmas period, but we very much hope it can take to the streets again in 2021.
