Lichfield shoppers help give Santa’s sleigh a makeover in time for Christmas

Santa’s sleigh is set to be spruced up this Christmas thanks to help from Lichfield shoppers.

The Christmas Tableau organised by Lichfield Round Table travels around the area each Christmas giving people the chance to see Father Christmas and donate to good causes supported by the group.

And their campaign to give the travelling Santa a revamp was boosted thanks to visitors to the Darwin Park Waitrose supermarket.

Each month charities and good causes can win a share of the £1,000 Waitrose Community Matters grant. The share is decided by customers who put tokens in the collection box of the cause they wish to support.

And after the count, Lichfield Round Table have picked up more than £300 for their Christmas Tableau.

The group’s spokesman Richard Holland said:

“We were delighted that Waitrose agreed to help our Tableau project. We plan on giving our float a make over this summer ready for Christmas. The £300 donation will certainly help us make sure the Tableau float will be ready for December.”
