Father Christmas in Chichester raises over £7000 this December

Throughout December members of Chichester Lions Club have helped Father Christmas call on a lot of residents who generously donated £7100 towards local good causes.

Lion President Richard Cowell thanked the members of the activities committee for organising the event. “Without the support of the club membership, police cadets and other volunteers Father Christmas would not be able to get round so many streets in Chichester. He normally travels the world in one night but here he likes to meet people and tell his bad jokes and even will pose for an “elfie”.

His sleigh pulled by Rudoph travelled over 45 miles through the residential areas of Chichester and rested a couple of times at Northgate car park and Sainsbury.
