On Saturday and Sunday nights, the great hearted band of helpers ( seasoned men and a lovely injection of new volunteers )'- walked something like 10 miles as the sleigh wound its way, carrying Santa, to as many houses as possible in Audlem, Hankelow, Swanbach, Buerton, Kinsey Heath and Coxbank.
All in all 8 hours of knocking on doors with the cheery sound of Christmas songs ringing out as we progressed through the dark of the nights. One of the most wonderful thing was to see the much increased number of young children here in Audlem following the new houses built hereabouts. A great thing to help keep the village young and of much wanted help in swelling numbers in our school. A special mention should go to master Hassan who ha a very busy evening and waled the same distance as the adults.!
We broke the record donations of last year and we could have collected around '2000!!! -- once the final count is made.All of which will be shared out in the new year to groups within our community.
Santa will finish his rounds with a Sleigh ride in Nantwich for Round Table, then Christmas party at Bridgemere School and finally at the ADAS Carol singing round the tree on the 20th. Great event and so many happy faces.
