Santa Claus is coming to town!

Rugby Editorial 30th Nov, 2021 Updated: 30th Nov, 2021   0

SANTA Claus is coming to town to spread Christmas magic around Rugby’s neighbourhoods and shopping centres on his annual tour.

Father Christmas will bring his sleigh, elves, Rudolph the Reindeer, and helpers from Rugby Rokeby Lions Club (RRLC) on the tour – raising funds for local good causes and people in need along the way.

The sleigh will be at supermarkets and shopping centres at weekends and on the three days before Christmas, and will tour residential areas in the evenings.

RRLC will provide daily updates, and also promise ‘one or two surprises from Santa himself’. Visit for more information.

Visit to make a charity donation, or donate cash to helpers on the sleigh.
