I’m so excited as its only…
until Christmas day!
🦌 Hold on to your reindeer, children, Santa’s coming to Congleton! 🦌
Santa will try to visit everyone who’d like to meet him on the listed routes, but we only have two hours for each night (four on Sundays), and due to Elf and Safety cannot stop on main roads. Congleton Santa is run by a very small team of volunteers, all of whom have regular day jobs, who want to try their best to bring some Christmas magic to the children and charities of Congleton.
And of course, please give generously when you see him en route! If you want to free up your purse while earning yourself some good will with Santa, then getting your change ready for when Santa and his Elves come by on route would be the way to go. You can find where and when he’ll be at our routes page, and even track him in real time.
🎁 We are not the Round Table, Lions or Rotary Club. We are only a small Congleton charity of only five core local volunteers (all with regular day jobs), who have worked hard to keep Santa going since Congleton Round Table disbanded in 2005. We try to spread festive cheer in the 3–4 weeks before Christmas, this year is 21 nights, over 50 hours, visiting over 10,000 houses, helping other Congleton Charities raise money in the process, so please help Santa pile on the pounds this Christmas 🎁
Consider gifting a small donation to Congleton Santa, because all of Clause’s causes benefit the people of Congleton.
As well as giving online, you can also give via text by texting SANTA and the amount you wish to donate to 70450. You can donate as much as £20, or as little as £1. So texting SANTA 2 to 70450 would see you donate £2. Each donation is a one-off (unless you want to text again!), and is collected securely by DONR. (Texts cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message). You will receive a GiftAid text, if you respond Gift Aid it will increase the value of your donation by 25%!
We have the @giveasyoulive app which turns a percentage of every purchase you make online into a free donation for us!
