Rotary Santa Sleigh – The Gap

Santa Claus is Coming to The Gap!

Rotary Ashgrove The Gap is pleased to be able to announce that Santa and all his helpers will be visiting The Gap again this year.

He will be with us from Thursday, 30 November till Wednesday 6 December.

Fund Raising

Every year the residents of The Gap give generously to our collectors and we hope you are able to do so again this year. All money collected goes towards a variety of Rotary Programs, such as Rotary Health (which conducts research into preventing youth mental health issues), Polio elimination globally, assistance to victims of natural disasters in Australia. We also assist local community organisations such as Meals on Wheels and Domestic Violence initiatives. If you do not have cash, we are able to take cards.

Please Be Aware

Sadly, Santa is unable to travel up all streets but we try to cover a wide a range of streets as we can. The tow vehicle and the sleigh are long and heavy and the increasing numbers of cars and other vehicles parked on the side of the road has made it increasingly dangerous to go down these streets.

Sometimes the weather does not allow Santa and his helpers to go out. Or he has to finish his run early. Last year storms had a serious impact on our ability to finish our nightly run. We hope this will not happen again this year. You will understand we can not have Santa, his helpers or you taking any risks during heavy rain and storms.

Your safety and the safety of our volunteers comes first.

Photos and Goodies

Don’t forget to have your photo taken with Santa. Santa’s helpers will help you find a suitable place to stand near the sleigh. Please be patient while you wait your turn. Santa will still have wrapped lollies and other goodies for all children.

Watch Our Facebook Page

We will be publishing daily maps on our Facebook page. Keep an eye out for these maps and find the closest place for you and your family to see Santa.

We wish to thank everyone who has helped Santa visit The Gap each year. We could not do this without your help. Santa and all his helpers will have a friendly smile and Christmas greeting for all of you.
