More children than ever will get to see Father Christmas this year as he makes his annual charity tour around Rugby.
Santa and his sleigh will be visiting with the Rugby Rokeby Lions Club earlier and for longer this year in an attempt to see as many people across the town as possible and help raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Not only will Father Christmas be visiting many streets in Rugby, youngsters will also be able to visit him at the Christmas light switch-on this Sunday and his sleigh will be parked up outside Tesco and Sainsbury’s on selected dates.
The tour will officially begin at Sunday’s festive event in the town centre where Father Christmas will be in his grotto from 11am to 5pm.
The sleigh will then tour the town as follows:
Wednesday December 4: Wood Street
Thursday December 5: Bridget Street
Friday December 6: Paddox
Saturday December 7: Painters Estate
Tuesday December 10: Oxford Street
Wednesday December 11: Paddox

Tuesday December 17: Shakespeare Gardens

Father Christmas will also be parked up in his sleigh outside Sainsbury’s in Dunchurch Road and Tesco in Leicester Road from 10am to 4pm on their respective dates.
