Ryedale Lions helping bring Santa to your door

After the challenges of last year it is planned to return to a more traditional collection routine but appropriate measures will be in place to keep everyone safe. There has been a very positive response to requests for extra elves and individuals, community groups and charities will be out helping Santa to meet the children and collect money. In another new initiative local businesses have stepped forward to sponsor some of Santa’s flights. As we go to Press there are plans for Radio York to accompany Santa on a number of rounds and they may even get an interview with the man himself.

There are still opportunities for businesses to get involved and support Ryedale Lions and our communities. Please contact Will Oxley on 07739 355951 or

The latest information and any updates to routes will be available on the website, Facebook and Twitter. The popular Santa tracker will also be giving updates on progress on each run.”
