Despite ‘rain-stopping-play’ on two grey and wet evenings, £1500 was raised from four evening routes in December on Santa’s Bus.
Newhaven, Peacehaven and Telscombe residents gave generously to the collectors, licenced by Lewes District Council, and four local venues welcomed Santa, Rudolph, Frosty and their friends with drinks and good cheer – The Telscombe Tavern, Papachino’s Gateway Café, The Hope and The Ark (Newhaven).
Head Elf, Paula Woolven, thanked all the volunteers for their time and effort. One volunteer, Ron, measured the Telscombe route at 11,000 steps on his ‘fit-bit’ watch device!
Other fundraising events included donations at the amazing Christmas light display by Newhaven resident, Caroline Counihan, and her family and a Christmas Lunch and raffle held at the Hillcrest Centre.
See you all next year!
