Father Christmas getting ready to tour Potters Bar

SANTA Claus is coming to town – bringing festive cheer to residents of Potters Bar throughout December.

The Potters Bar Rotary Club sleigh will once again be roaming the streets in the run-up to Christmas.

A full itinerary for when the man in red and his band of Rotarian helpers with their collection tins will be paying a visit to your street is in this week’s Potters Bar Edition.

After the tour, the sleigh will then park up in the Tesco car park in Mutton Lane, from December 21 to Christmas Eve.

In addition to collecting donations on the streets, the club is also selling Christmas cards this year.

All proceeds from the sleigh collections and Christmas card sales will go towards the Rotary club’s charity fund, which supports good causes both at home and abroad.

This year, president Helga Quickenden’s local charities are the Hertfordshire Air Ambulance, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Keech Hospice Care and DebRA, which works on behalf of people in the UK with the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Cash raised will also support Rotary’s local community fund, as well as national and international charities Sightsavers, ShelterBox, Canine Partners, and the PolioPlus project.

Rotarians will be hoping to beat last year’s fundraising total, which brought in more than �7,000.
