Santa and the Christmas Sleigh

Christmas Collections - Dec 2020

For many years Rotary Beckenham has taken Father Christmas and his sleigh around the residential streets of Beckenham to raise money to give to local children's charities.

This year will be different! Santa and the sleigh will still be visiting and families will still hear carols and Christmas songs, but his helpers won't be knocking on doors. Instead, people will be encouraged to put money in our collecting buckets as we pass by.

Here are the dates and routes around Beckenham that are planned for this year. Each route will start at around 6.30 pm.

Mon  7th Dec  Village Way/Whitmore Road 

Tue  8th Dec  Croydon Road/Durban Road

Wed 9th Dec  Upper Elmers End Road

Thu 10th Dec  Eden Way/Monks Orchard Road

Fri   11th Dec  Langley Way/Elwill Way

Tue 15th Dec  Langley Park

The event is always exciting for the young children en route and this year they can check Santa's progress by clicking HERE, or by loading the Sleigh Tracker app (by Duncan Fitz-Gibbons) on to a mobile phone. 

This year has been a tough time for all the charities we would normally support at this time. Everyone is encouraged to give generously. For cashless donations, a QR code will be printed on our flyers and Santa's helpers will have card readers available.  

If the sleigh doesn't visit your street, or you won't be at home when it does, why not visit our Just Giving page (search 'Peter Braithwaite' our sponsor).                                                        

Thank you to you all, who give so generously each year and Merry Christmas.
