The Melton Mowbray and District Round Table has thanked generous residents after this month’s Santa float collection raised more than £1,500 for charitable causes in the local community.
With the help of their friends and family, the Round Table members had successful visits to Asfordby, East Goscote and Whissendine.
Chris McKain is chairman of the Melton Mowbray and District Round Table which also supports Melton Mowbray Rotary Club as well as having their own Santa float.
He said: “Months of preparation went into building the sleigh and planning the routes but the results were outstanding.
“Santa sleigh collections are the most challenging, yet rewarding, nights of the year but with the residents of Melton being so generous with their money, it’s totally worth all of our hard work.
“If you are interested in getting involved in the festive fundraising next year, or if you would like to find out more about us, please contact us via our Facebook page Melton Mowbray Round Table 479.”
