In 2019 we decided to bring Santa to Avonmouth. When we realised how popular this idea was we decided to include the surrounding villages. Over the course of three evenings Santa and his team of volunteers walked over 20 miles handing out over 750 selection boxes to children in Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston, Sea Mills, Coombe Dingle, Stoke Bishop and Shirehampton.
In 2020 we did it all again but due to the popularity the number of gifts handed out grew to 1500. In a year that was thwarted by Covid we struggled to raise enough funds to cover the cost of the gifts and insurance etc but thanks to a donation from Quartet and our volunteers selling Christmas Trees we managed to do it again.
See you in December 2021 when Santa will be touring again!
Meet the team
Santa cant do it alone – luckily he has a team of volunteers to help!
This year we have been lucky enough to be awarded a grant from the Quartet Community Foundation which helps us make the event happen – Thank you Quartet!
