STAYING SAFE WITH SANTA

To operate the Huntingdon Santa sleigh safely this year we have to follow up-to-date guidance from both the Government and our Huntingdonshire District Council.

To ensure the safety for Santa, his helpers and yourselves we will be operating a SPACE, WAVE and DONATE policy.

SPACE 

Please do not directly approach Santa, the sleigh, or any of his helpers or volunteers.

Wherever and whenever possible, please stay on your own property. Otherwise maintain a safe distance from others.

WAVE

From a safe distance please wave for Santa and his helpers. If you’re in your car, give us a honk.

We would also love to see you lit up with your flashiest Christmas accessories!

DONATE 

This year we won’t be knocking on doors. Instead, if you’d like to donate to us we’ll be taking donations online via PayPal. Details are on this page.

If you have large pots of coins you would like to donate, please feel free to leave them at the end of your path for us to collect safely.

* More information:

To help you see Santa, we are tracking the sleigh as usual, and this year we are going to try and live stream it as well for those who are shielding. 

To keep everyone safe, please observe social distancing if you come out to see us and stay two metres apart or in your car if you drive to find us. Please don’t approach the sleigh, Santa or any of the volunteers at any point.

We’re sorry it’s not going to be like it usually is, but let’s face it, what has been this year?

BE KIND – NO SCROOGES

The vast majority of local residents are so kind and understanding. Unfortunately, as we have had some very negative comments from a few people in the past, we need to make you aware that the Round Table charity Christmas collections are organised and run in the spare time of a just a few volunteers.

Each year it is a struggle to put this event on and amid a global pandemic that only becomes harder. At one point we weren’t sure we would be able to run it this year. Thanks to a few hard-working individuals we’re happy to say we have been able to run a cut-down version this year.

We’re not looking for your pity or any sympathy, we just want some understanding. If you’re disappointed, we’re sorry. But, please don’t ask us to make a special trip to your area, it’s just not going to be possible this year – as much as we would want to. Yes, some of our larger rounds have been condensed into one night. We hope to cover more ground as we won’t be collecting door-to-door. Due to that, our charity collections will be down, so if you can, please make a donation online (we would still like to be able to support local causes in 2021).

Merry Christmas and hopefully normal service will be resumed next year!
