Santa’ Sleigh

Well, Santa has fitted in his last Sleigh run for us today. He’s managed a marathon of 12 runs around the area and seen an estimated 700 children.

Santa would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported him again this year, it has been great to see so many people out in support – it is why he likes to help us – and has promised that he will be available next year.

With a huge thanks to everyone involved.

Final Preparations for Christmas!

Santa is finalising his Christmas preparations for 2019. Before he heads back to the Northpole, to ensure that all the presents are wrapped, labelled and ticked off against the many Christmas lists that he’s received over the past year, he is going to help us do three more Sleigh runs around Kingswinford and Stourbridge.

Look out for him on Friday in High Acres, he’s in and around Penfields on Saturday and his final run with us is around Charterfields & Blandford Mere on Sunday. Start times are: 6 pm on Friday and 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Route details are here.

Santa is looking forward to seeing you all!

Lions go Quackers

At their canal fun day and duck race, Kingswinford & Stourbridge Lions Club combined their fund raising with a great day out for local families. The Event was held on 9th June on the playing fields adjacent to Wordsley Canal Junction. As well as the main event of racing ducks from the lock, there was canoeing, boat trips and stalls representing various local charities. 

Proceeds from the race and food sales will go to one of the Lions current charities, Papyrus which works to prevent teenage suicides and the event has also helped the other charities attending to promote their efforts and raise funds.
