Charity Events Wednesfield Rotary Santa Sleigh

Published on November 30th, 2015 | by James Clarke


The Rotary Club are bringing Santa’s sleigh to a street near you!

Wednesfield Rotary Club will be hitting the streets again this year with Santa and their sleigh in tow.

Every year volunteers for the Rotary club bring Santa to the streets of Wednesfield making collections for charity and spreading a little Christmas cheer along the way and this year is no different. Below is a list of dates where Santa and his Rotary friends will be hitting the streets around our way.

Please bare in mind Santa and his helpers are volunteers, they can not get everywhere they’d like to in the limited time they have and while start times are published we cannot say with any accuracy exact times for set streets – and they will not travel the full length of some streets.

Most collections with the Sleigh commence at 6.00pm and end at around 8.00pm, others vary so please see the listings below BUT this is all dependent on road conditions, the way cars are parked allowing for access for the volunteers and whole array of other eventualities beyond their control.

  2. Darren says:

    Really pleased you are visiting Ferndale Road in Essington on Sunday 20th as an elf had started a rumour we were on the naughty list and being missed out this year

  3. Such a shame they don’t come onto Coppice Farm these days as they used to years ago! I suppose Santa is just too busy to visit the little kiddies of Coppice Farm ?

    How much is it to visit Heathwood road Burnage
