Santa Claus is coming to town!

Rugby Editorial 30th Nov, 2022 Updated: 1st Dec, 2022   0

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, raising funds for local good causes and people in need along the way.

Starting from tonight (Thursday December 1), he will be touring the town, stopping along the route to give Rugbeians a chance to take a picture with him.

Rugby Rokeby Lions would like to thank sponsors Carter and King for their support of Santa’s Sleigh, and Venture Caravans for getting it ready.

Fans can follow his route on his Santa Tracker by visiting!rrlsanta during his tours each evening.

Anyone coming out to say hello is asked to take care on the roads in the dark.

Visit for updates and route details.

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