Each day is listed with start times and a map of the area to show the roads we hope to be able to get round (weather permitting).
Table chairman Daniel Buckley said: “Last year with Santa was great, despite the poor weather at times we managed to raise a lot of money for the community, we were also able to try a few new routes, some of which worked and some didn’t to help us reach more people through December.
“This year we are growing on that success and have established the route in Woodrow, expanded a new route in Webheath and changed some of the existing routes to try and get to more people.
“As long as the weather holds up for us we think this year could be our biggest yet!
“We can’t wait to bring Santa to a street near you, soon!”.
“We love seeing the excited faces all along our routes, our previous Santa sleigh’s have helped us raise much-needed funds for local charities and we are keen to continue to show our support and this year do even more!
“We can’t wait to see all the community from 6th December to the 20th December!”
Please remember all Santa and his little helpers are volunteers giving up their own time to spread a little Christmas cheer.
