Hemel Hempstead Sees Santa’s Sleigh for Charity

News at Harry Charles | 05/11/2021

Hemel Rotary Santa Sleigh will be collecting money for local good causes as the sleigh spreads festive cheer

The much-loved sleigh will once again be bringing some festive cheer to the streets of Hemel Hempstead.  The event also raises vital cash for local charities with collections enroute and on their just giving page. 

The Rotary Santa Sleigh has now operated for four full years, and is a much-loved feature of Christmas in Dacorum. They have engaged the support of local charities, who deliver leaflets along the 25 routes, and accompany the sleigh. This is a morale-boosting community event that brings joy to the children, and indeed to adults’ faces.  Money is collected at the roadside and leaflets will be handed out including details on how to donate.

You can even track Santa's progress on the day at Christmas.trackit.247.com - the website will go live just before Santa is due to set off.

You can check whether your house is on a route, view maps of the route the sleigh will take and what date Santa will arrive there at the Santa Sleigh Street Finder website. Rotary is hoping that this year will see a return to a full schedule, but people are advised to check online for any last minute changes.

All routes begin at 6pm and end at 8pm.

The list of routes is correct as of time of publishing - but check the Street Finder for the latest updates.

Friday, December 10, Saturday, December 11, Thursday, December 16, Friday, December 18, Sunday, December 19 and Thursday, December 23.
