SANTA’S COMING DOWN YOUR WAY

Rotary Club of Wigan–SANTA’S COMING DOWN YOUR WAY


       Santa is coming down your way! “Ho Ho Ho!!”

Wigan Rotary Club will be accompanying Santa and his sleigh around the streets of Wigan throughout December.

You can also see him at Tesco and Asda plus a special visit to Orrell Water Park on Sunday 8th December.

To further lift the Christmas spirits the Rotary Choir will be in the Grand Arcade on Saturday 7th December so come on down and join them to sing your favourite Christmas songs.

The President of Wigan Rotary Club Mervyn Reeves says ’This is a special time of year leading up to the ‘big day’ and we enjoy seeing the happy faces on children and adults alike as Santa travels around.  Make sure you know where we are each day be are ready to join us.  We are grateful for everyone’s generosity and the donations we receive.  All the money raised goes to Rotary Charities.  With over 40 different organisations benefitting last year alone from the money the people of Wigan donated’.

 Please see the list of dates when Santa is likely to be down your way and you can look at the club’s website www.wiganrotaryclub.org to see a full up to date list of the routes and also details of how we spent the all the money raised last year.
