This was Christmas 2018!

I must be getting old, it didn’t seem long since last Christmas and here we were again.  

The planning was all in place, our friends and volunteers that help us each year were all lined up and ready to go.  We’d held our Christmas Dance on 24th November, so we’d limbered up and were now ready for the challenge; starting with Santa Claus at the Langford Garden Centre on the 1st December.  He would be kept busy there, right the way through to the 23rd.  We would have to plan his availability to join us on the sleigh runs and the Supermarket tin shakes.

We planned to stand outside our local supermarkets for 11 days and would like to thank Morrisons in Shefford, Tesco at Sandy; Asda, Sainsburys & Matalan in Biggleswade for letting us collect outside their front doors

On 6 evenings we took our sleigh around the streets, knocking on the doors of Biggleswade, Clifton, Langford, Potton and Sandy.

Thank you to everyone who helped us with our fund-raising; contributed to our collections; or gave us permission to stand outside their business to collect much needed funds.

It’s January now, planning for Christmas 2019 is in hand.
