Santa is coming to Westhoughton - 2016 Visits

December is upon us, and as is tradition, Santa travels around Westhoughton on his sleigh, assisted by the Elves of the Rotary Club of Westhoughton, enchanting children at this special time as Father Christmas makes his list and prepares for his busiest of days on the 25th.

As well as giving children a chance to see and meet Santa as his float travels around Westhoughton, this is a key fundraising activity for the Rotary Club of Westhoughton which uses the gratefully received donations to support local community groups and charities, handing out grants to 25-30 deserving groups doing good work at the Annual Presentation Evening in March. The money also helps with other events and activities, including the St. George's Day Party that caters for some 150 old age pensioners.

Have a lovely Christmas!
