This evening Santa was assisted by seven Rotarian “little helpers”. We were overwhelmed by the, approxiamtely, 200 youngsters waiting for Santa at our first stop! While this was marvellous, it led to Santa's journey being delayed and our apologies to everyone who had to wait, in the cold, for him. Once again, Santa handed out sweets and lots of photographs were taken with him on his sleigh. A fantastic, £180.00 was raised for local charities.
£150.00 had been raised in Motherwell on the 16th.
With the addition of funds already raised, the Rotarians donated £500.00 each to St Andrew’s Hospice and Lanarkshire Cancer Care Trust.
Out thanks to the communities in Motherwell and Wishaw for their fantastic support.
