For the last ten years I’ve been a proud member of the Rotary Club of Gloucester, a very merry band of men & women who have a lot of fun socially, whilst also raising money for many good causes, not only abroad but the great county of Gloucestershire as well.
Christmas as you may gather is a very busy time for our club as it gives us many opportunities to raise much needed funds for local causes, our three main way’s are store collections at local supermarkets, the Tree of Light (more on that later) and my
personal favourite, street collections with Santa!
This is where we take Father Christmas around the residential streets of Gloucester, waving from his chimney on the back of a Flat Bed truck, that is blaring out Christmas Carols from the sound system.
For the last few years it has been my pleasure to take on the role of Santa, believe me when I say there is nothing better than seeing the faces of children lining the pavements, enthusiastically waving and smiling in awe as Father Christmas passes by waving atop a 15ft chimney, throwing chocolates as he, bellows out some Ho Ho Ho’s and Merry Christmas!
It isn’t only the children that have the smiling faces but their parents and neighbours young and old, it really does prove that for lots of people Christmas really is a magical time of year.
Ho, Ho, Ho and A Merry Christmas to You All!
