SAVE Our Sleighs!
The SOS cry for help has gone out from Thorne Rural Lions on behalf of Father Christmas to find a home urgently for his seasonal vehicles.
Santa’s sleigh - and back up vehicle - are usually based in Kirk Sandall (when they’re not at the North Pole!) but due to unforeseen circumstances a new home is needed within the next three weeks - or they will be out on the streets!
Lion Dennis Drury said the group needed to find a garage or a similar for the two sleighs which measure 19ft long x 8ft wide x 10ft high, and 24ft x 7ft x 12ft.
He said: “It’s a real cry for help as we ony have three weeks to find somewhere. We really need somewhere around the Kirk Sandall or Barnby Dun area if possible.”
The Lions call on Santa in the run up to Christmas to travel round the streets to help collect in money for charities.
Anyone that can help is asked to contact Mr Drury on 01302 880564.
