Margate Rotary is bringing its Santa’s sleigh to town

Santa is coming to Margate

Despite the covid  restrictions, the Margate Rotary Santa sleigh has been given special permission to visit a street near you this year.

Santa’s elves have been very well behaved, social distancing and wearing masks while they make all the lovely presents.

Unfortunately, Santa will not be able to stop and talk this year so please look out for him and cheer and shout ‘Happy Christmas’ when you see him.

The club will not be able to collect donations as they would normally, so head to their ‘Where’s Santa’ justgiving page instead. All donations will be used to provide Christmas dinners to the lonely and vulnerable in the community.
