Have your say

The Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray Belvoir’s Santa’s sleigh collection raised £6,534.

Spokesman Eric Sylt said: “In addition to all those people who gave Santa such a tremendous reception throughout he collection period, the Melton Belvoir Rotary Club would like to thank, most sincerely, the organisers of the Victorian market, the managers of the Tesco, Co-op and Sainsbury’s superstores and the Grange Alpine Restaurant for inviting Santa onto their premises.

“As is the tradition, Santa was accompanied by many of his elves not only from the Melton Belvoir Rotary Club and Inner Wheel but also from Round Table.”

The money raised will be used to support a range of community groups and charitable activities.
