We have had a few enquiries asking if our Christmas Sleighs, with Santa around the streets, and usual visits will be going ahead this year?
The current situation is that we are in the process of renovating both the North and South side sleighs in the hope that we will be able to bring Christmas cheer to the community in some way. However, we have to be guided by covid restrictions in conjunction with Rotherham Council and we will keep you updated. Not only does Santa and the Sleigh bring the Christmas spirit and happiness to so many people (which we could all do with at the moment) it is our biggest fundraiser of the year enabling us to carry on our work helping people in the community and sponsoring local groups and individuals.
This week alone we have helped two families experiencing difficulties and made a difference to their lives. We have helped throughout lockdown via groups, individuals and food banks, but without fundraising at Christmas and throughout the year, which so far we have been unable to do, this will become difficult. Should you wish to donate to us you can do so at Virgin Money Giving to help us to carry on our work in the community in these testing times.
Stay safe everyone, Lynn Reaney, on behalf of MRVL.
