Thought we'd take a moment to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported our Santa's Sleigh collection. We've had a record collection and could not have done it without your support.
Thank you to all the volunteers and support organisations who braved the elements and visited the boys and girls around Balsall Common - The Lily Mae Foundation, 53rd Berkswell Scouts, 2nd Balsall Common Scouts and Galileo Explorers, Balsall and Berkswell Hornets, Berkswell Cricket Club Juniors, Burton Green Residents' Association plus the dozens of individual volunteers who so generously gave their time.
Santa also says THANKS to Unity Automotive - Coventry (Carstins) both for the loan of their superb towing vehicle for towing him around the village, and for sponsoring the Christmas Cards which we delivered to every household.
A little known secret is that Santa and his elves need special walkie-talkie radios when he's on his rounds to make sure that he doesn't miss a street - and they couldn't do it without the help of Mike Weaver Communications.
Finally, a tremendous THANK YOU to all the residents of Balsall Common and the surrounding area for your kindness and generosity
No rest for the elves - they are moving on to our Winter Foodbank collection in January ... watch out for more information in the next few weeks -
