The reindeer have been fed, the sleigh has been repaired and Santa is almost ready to visit Henley and Shiplake, but a few more helpers are needed to get Santa and his sleigh on the road.
The Henley Lions have kindly agreed to take over from the Round Table and continue Santa’s visits to Henley and Shiplake. As usual Santa needs some helpers who will be knocking on your door rattling collecting buckets for donations. Lions will continue to fund the Christmas Party for children of Bishopswood Special School and support local charities from the money collected.
Can you spare a few hours from 5.30 to 7.45pm on the following evenings – Sunday 10 December, Wednesday 13 December, Sunday 17 December, Tuesday 19 December, Wednesday 20 December. If you can help, please contact Pam Phillips on 07970 130146 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The planned schedule for Santa is as follows BUT if it rains Santa will be unable to visit on that evening as he does not want to get his beard wet, or catch a cold!
