Santa’s Sleigh 2018

Farewell! – Santa Leaves For Lapland

This year Santa and the Elves were out visiting the people of Malton, Norton and the villages on no less than 19 separate occasions – a record in the 23 year history of the sleigh! And with all the new houses being built locally this will probably increase again in 2019.

Thanks to your amazing generosity the Lions have been able to raise


which will help fund local projects including the Malton Old Folks Party in February, the annual Ryedale Special Families’ steam engine trip to Whitby and our Community Fund which last year donated £5,000 to local charities and good causes.

Lots of you came out to say hello to Santa….
….in the villages….
….and in the towns….
…. and he was always happy to see you!
It’s a huge team effort with as many as 20 elves out each night, helping Santa in all weathers.
Not all of them are well behaved….
….but they all enjoy a bite to eat and a small tipple whilst they’re out!
Some of Santa’s friends were really cool this year….
….and no matter what their age….
….they all enjoyed Santa’s magic.
Thank you Santa!
