Danetre Daventry Rotary Club organises and runs the annual Santa Christmas collection in the Daventry district. This much-loved tradition has been running for 56 years and is very much part of Christmas in the district for many people.
Using two sleighs on trailers we collect every night, except Sundays, for the 3 weeks before Christmas with the help of local charity volunteers. This represents in excess of 500 collecting hours. All funds raised, nett of costs, are kept and distributed exclusively to local charities, youth and senior organisations in the Daventry area.

And the solution involves Cummins.
| Daventry, as we all know, is a small town and as if by magic Cummins got to hear of our project and decided they could do something about it.
So the project got off the ground on Sunday 16th May, with 219 days to go until Christmas, the Sleighs were delivered to Cummins car park and the Project is under the control of Rory Jordon of Cummins.
