Wigan Santa's Community Sleigh

"Sponsored by the Community" ~ Established 2014

Who are We?

The Christmas management team are made up of  Dave Arrowsmith, Alison Glover, Helen Arrowsmith, Stacey Hearn, Carol Atherton and Ray Brogan.


We are grateful to Ashton Rotary for allowing us to use their sleigh for the past few years, and also Wigan Rotary before them, which has allowed us to bring Santa to local children in disadvantaged areas and fund raise at the same time. Monies raised has been used to provide Christmas hampers to the elderly, housebound and those who have lost a spouse at Christmas and are alone. ALL money we raise through Wigan Santa's Community Sleigh is put back into our community for our own Children in our area and also adjacent wards. We dont discriminate on who we allow to come to our Children's parties or events.  

Santa not only attends events in Pemberton, this photo was taken at Orrell Christmas tree lights switch on in 2014 at Bookcycle, Orrell. The event was arranged by ABC Children's Nursery and part funded by Cllr Steven Murphy and Cllr David Arrowsmith.
