Calne Lions are delighted to announce that SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN From Thursday 3rd December to Wednesday 23rd December the Calne Lions Santa Sleigh will be visiting the streets of Calne and surrounding villages spreading Christmas cheer and raising funds to enable us to continue providing support to local individuals/groups who are in need.
There will be a reduced number of collectors, with appropriate social distancing measures being put in place.
For those people who would rather not answer the door to our collectors that’s absolutely fine, do wave to Santa as he goes by, and if you are able to donate online via the ‘Donate’ button at the very top of this page that would be really appreciated.
Our Santa Sleigh: bringing Christmas to the streets of Calne
Our Santa Sleigh comes to the streets of Calne every December, playing music and bringing festive cheer wherever it goes! Look out for the sleigh, give Santa a wave and please give generously to our collectors as they come by.
Weather permitting we plan to be out on weeknights and Saturdays throughout December.
We would love you to come and join us collecting with Santa
If you would like to help with the Santa collections please let us know, we would be incredibly grateful for your support!
To register and volunteer as a collector please go to our Santa Diary using the following link https://calnelionsrota.redder.space/ Currently all available collection slots are fully booked, but do check the Santa Diary on a regular basis in case there are any cancellations.
We meet at 5:45pm in the Church Street car park (vehicle access via Carnegie Mews on the A4, postcode SN11 0EN) and set off by 6pm, returning usually just after 8pm.
Please note that under 18’s, who are legally not able to carry their own collection bucket, will unfortunately not be able to come out collecting this year as we need to reduce the number of people accompanying the Santa Sleigh to avoid any unnecessary risk.
For safety reasons spaces are limited to 8 collectors a night, so please click on the white X to the right of your name within the Santa Diary to remove yourself if you are no longer able to go out on any particular night.
For track & trace purposes you must have reserved a space via the Santa Diary to be able to go out collecting on any particular night.
See you soon, and Merry Christmas!

Have you missed him?
In December once Santa has started doing his rounds you can check to see if you’ve missed him. You can check the map above to see if he’s approaching or to catch up with him!
