Driffield Santa's sleigh 2017

Post by Rail Rover » Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:45 am

We have been asked by Driffield Rotary if a few of us can help out with Santa this year on the evenings of Wednesday 6th to Wednesday 13th December inclusive, except Saturday. We did this last year & the railway was nicely rewarded for our efforts.

I will put details up shortly, but broadly if anyone can give their time up for around 3 hours on one or more of those evenings (starts around 6.00 pm at Driffield Cross Hill car park) please let me know or post on this thread before 18th November. The task involves walking around a set part of Driffield each evening 'knocking on doors' with collection tins.

I am likely to do at least 3 turns & can fit in around others' preferred dates. Thank-you.

Sorry, but I will not get back from work in time to assist with this.

Please can anyone spare even just one evening for this good cause?

Your efforts will mean that the YWR receives a donation, too!

Thank-you to those who have volunteered so far.

Please would someone else come forward? We did well last year & it all helps to cement the YWR as a local community project.
