Santa Claus is coming to town!

Rugby Editorial 17th Nov, 2023   0

BE GOOD, for goodness sake – Santa Claus is coming to town, and he could be bringing his sleigh to spread festive cheer in your neighbourhood.

Big-hearted volunteers from the Rugby Rokeby Lions Club will accompany Father Christmas and Rudolf on tour around Rugby Borough during December.

Starting from Sunday (November 26), he will be touring the town, stopping along the route to give Rugbeians a chance to take a picture with him.

Father Christmas and his helpers will be collecting cash donations for local charitable causes, or inviting residents to donate online.




Visit www.facebook.com/RugbyRokebyLionsClub for detailed route updates on the day, or to track Santa on his neighbourhood routes each evening.
