The Isle of Thanet Sunrise Rotary Club Christmas collection

The Isle of Thanet Rotary Christmas Collection is well known for its sleigh with Father Christmas on board travelling around various streets in Thanet

bringing delight to both children and their parents alike.

The evening is one of the most satisfying of our fund raising activities. We collect for local charities and many people save loose change all year just to donate to this collection.

Father Christmas always makes time to meet children and take their 'wish lists', and 2019 has been no exception.

The sleigh following a make-over was in use at Garlinge on the 4th December. Residents next saw it at Tivoli on the 18th December.

In addition to sleigh rides, Santa was also in the foyer at Tesco Manston on 9th December
