For the last 16 years, Tettenhall Rotary Club’s Father Christmas Sleigh has brought a little magic to children by touring neighbourhoods before Christmas and entertaining shoppers outside supermarkets. Many thousands of pounds have been raised for good causes.
Rotarian Roger Timbrell said that ‘the real magic this year was the Christmas spirit, generosity and warmth of welcome of the people in the communities we visited’.
Organiser Chris Bowyer said ‘ On behalf of Tettenhall Rotary Club I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated. Our collections will be distributed to Compton care, Acorns childrens hospice, the Midlands Air Ambulance and other worthy causes.
