The Rotary Club of Hyde Christmas Sleigh and Father Christmas will once again be setting off on their Christmas tour around the various districts in Hyde between December 9th and 23rd.

Father Christmas will also be visiting various event locations, supermarkets and superstores in the run up to the festive celebrations.

Helped by the Rotary Club members and volunteers we will be handing out Christmas cards and sweets, and will confidently be relying on the usual generosity of the community to donate their pocket change to help the club support local projects that the club supports throughout the coming year. It also gives the children the opportunity to come out and ask Father Christmas for those last minute Christmas presents that they may have missed off their Christmas list, and if they’re lucky, have a picture taken with Father Christmas.

Hyde Rotary Club President Alan Oldham said, “I would like to encourage residents and children to come out on to the streets this festive period and get involved in the Christmas spirit and donate to our collection and help support the many local projects we will be supporting next year.”
