Helping Santa to help others...

Each year the five Rotary Clubs of Coventry and The Rotaract Club of Coventry get together with volunteers to help Santa collect money for two main Charities and for the Rotary Charities. The two main charities for 2019 are Coventry Myton Hospice & The Air Ambulance Service.
We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.
In 1979 the Bishop of Coventry set up a committee to discuss the possibility of opening a hospice for people in need of special care in the Warwickshire and Coventry areas. An appeal for money was launched. Funding came from many sources, as it does now, including Rotarians, Lions, Round Tables, and various other charitable organisations and many individuals.
The Air Ambulance Service is a fantastic lifesaving organisation with an incredible team of hard working people behind it. We're continually striving to develop our services so that we can continue to save lives and alleviate sickness wherever and whenever possible.

As chair of the Rotary Santa Sleigh organising committee I would like to explain a few things about this years event. There has been such a severe drop in the number of volunteers available to us that at one stage we had to consider cancelling the Santa Sleigh. Our older volunteers are less able physically to assist and our younger ones have more family commitments. However the Rotary Clubs were so concerned about Coventry kids and charities missing out that it was decided to go ahead but cover less routes. We did not take the decision to cut routes lightly and have tried to cover as much of the city as possible. There will be static events where parents from the areas we cannot cover can bring their kids along to see and meet Santa. As always we will do our very best to keep people informed of developments via social media but it will not be possible to respond to individual messages or comments. Over the years the Rotary Santa Sleigh collection has raised many thousands of pounds, ALL of which goes to local charities. This includes both to those named on the artwork at the end of the years campaign and furthermore those local charities and causes helped throughout the year via the small share of donations received by each of the rotary clubs. We understand the disappointment this may have caused, but would like to take this opportunity to thank the people in ALL areas of Coventry for their generosity and the volunteers who have helped us by giving up their valuable time. We realise that beyond it being a fundraiser, it's also a massive community event which is why we review each area every year to try to reach as many areas as possible, this will happen again for next year. Thank you for your understanding and support.
