Unfortunately due to Covid we decided it was in the best interests of public safety not to do the usual supermarket and street collections with Santa and his Sleigh . Earlier in the year we had already cancelled our swimathon and the Heatons Open Gardens event had to go "virtual" so this meant that yet again a major fundraising opportunity was closed to us .
Much to our delight family Ruby stepped forward offering to use the end of their house in Parsonage Road as a calendar bill board .Every day in Advent a new window was "opened" which was sponsored by a local company or organisation .
The sponsorship money was all donated to the Lamplighters Christmas Charity fund and raised over £2000 .
The Lamplighters would like to thank the sponsors for their generous donations.
