Santa is on his way

22 November @ 4:00 pm - 20 December @ 8:30 pm

Santa Needs Your Support!

Every year, children (and their parents!) in the towns and villagers of Flintshire look forward to receiving a visit from Father Christmas, in his brightly lit Sleigh, pulled by his trusty reindeer, supported by an ageing Daihatsu 4×4, and surrounded by members and friends of the Rotary Club of Flint & Holywell.
For many years, the funds collected by the club from the generous sponsorship of local busineses and street collections have enabled The Rotary Club to support local needy causes, and indeed, this has been the mainstay of the Club’s Community Service Account.
Unfortunately the cost of maintaining and upgrading the Christmas Float and its support vehicle has been rising significantly, and this has come at a time when money from the street collections has been in decline. To ensure the future of the Float, it is essential that we obtain more support from the local community. It would be such a shame to see the Float dissappear here in Flintshire as it has done in many similar communities throughout the country.
With this in mind, the Club is determined to ensure the Float does indeed have a viable future and has adopted the modern Crowd Funding principle to attract donations. This allows those members of the community who have enjoyed the wonder of the Christmas Float in the past, as well of those who look forward to experiencing the joy it brings at this special time of the year to contribute through a dedicated web site which can be found at www.crowdfunder.co.uk or via the Club’s Facebook page.
In this way, the children in this part of Flintshire will continue to marvel at the sight of Santa and his Sleigh and reindeer gliding through the highways and byways of our towns and villages at Christmas Time.
Simply go on line to to make your donation. Whether its £3 or £300, every little helps
