Santa’s Float

Father Christmas and his reindeer were out in the Frome area again during December, & the community as ever showed their amazing support

The Lions & Rotary Clubs of Frome would like to say a massive thank you for the record amount donated during December. This time it reached a record amount of £13,657.This will help them continue to support charities & other good causes in the local area.

The presidents of both clubs expressed their sincere thanks to all those who , yet again, have volunteered huge amounts of their time. They made special mention of Mike Bishop of MJB Cabs, who masterminded the routes. Together with his wife Angie, & their dedicated team of drivers & marshals, they made sure the float got round safely. Also mentioned were the many volunteers from both clubs & partner organisations, providing teams of collectors on each night.

The DAKS trust who own & manage the float on behalf of Frome Rotary and Lions said, ‘None of this would be possible without the generous support of individuals & local businesses. In particular, we would like everyone in Frome to know about the fantastic backing we continue to receive from Postlebury Car & Commercial Breakdown, Barnes Coachworks, H & B Tyres, Oakley Garden & Estate Machinery, D & H Motors, Peter Beard, Alvin Lee and many others.

Santa’s sleigh and the reindeer are now back in their stable, being well looked after and having a hard-earned rest, before being back next December.
