An annual fundraising event is getting ready to take Santa’s sleigh on the road around Lichfield once again.

Members of Lichfield Round Table will be joined by volunteers from local groups to collect money to support good causes.

This year’s sleigh run will kick-off tomorrow (1st December) in Netherstowe before heading out across the city in the run up to Christmas.

Organiser Chris Albutt said: “Sleigh season is the annual highlight of Lichfield Round Table and all of the money we raise is given out to the charities we collect with.

“We try and reach everyone in the city and surrounding areas over 23 nights and it’s an honour to bring huge smiles to the faces of the young and old alike.

“Our new sleigh is finally finished thanks to the new SureStore on Eastern Avenue, who donated a secure working space and storage for the sleigh while we upgraded the lights and sound.

“We also have a great towing vehicle kindly donated by Arbury Peugeot so we’re ready for the festive season.

“A huge thank you to everybody who donates to our sleigh collections – you will make an incredible difference to the lives of those who receive the money.”

The full list of routes and dates are available online. For more details visit the Lichfield Round Table Facebook page.
