Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club, who have just helped Santa tour the town in his sleigh, would like to say a massive: “Thank You” to everyone who came out to wish him well and donate to the Lions Community account which will go towards helping local good causes and charities.
Santa has been out and about in his sleigh on 14 occasions with the Lions and, in addition to his tours of numerous streets, he has helped Nanleddan and St Newlyn East residents with their lights switch on. Shoppers at Morrisons also had the chance to hear his famous “HO HO HO” at the doorway during the store opening hours last Sunday and he even found time to drop in to the Sandy Lodge Hotel to give some gifts away from the charity DISC.
Lion President, Jill Bunt, said: “It’s always a massive pleasure to help Santa and he has really enjoyed it. We judge the success of these Santa tours in the number of smiles we get but it’s also great for the community that we have been able to raise over £1,800 as well – we know how much it is needed.
“If anyone has any photos or videos of Santa’s tour this year that they would like to share publicly, then please feel free to upload them to our facebook page,” Jill added.
If you happen to have seen Santa and his Towan Blystra Lions elves out and about and have wondered how you can get involved then please get in touch because the club are always very pleased to invite new potential members along to see what they do. Just go onto their website www.newquaytowanblystralions.org.uk or give them a ring on 0345 833 4981.
