Organised by the Rotary Club of Brightlingsea & District, 2021 will see Santa and the Rotary Elves touring the streets of Brightlingsea and surrounding villages to bring festive cheer to your door and collect donations to support local good causes. Each night Santa is joined by a team of collecting partners, who come from a host of local organisations including St Helena Hospice, Brightlingsea In Bloom, 4-Youth, Wivenhoe Scouts & Guides, Alresford Pre-School and Primary School PTAs, Porridge & Pens, Gt Bentley Primary School PTA, Ladybirds Pre-School Thorrington, Brightlingsea Lido and other local Rotary supported good causes.

We are pleased to confirm that, subject to any last minute government announcements regarding Covid-19 restrictions, door to door collections will go ahead this year. So if you see Santa do please drop some money into one of the elve’s collecting boxes. Alternatively you can donate online or via one of the collecting boxes located in a shop or venue near you – click here to find a list of venues which will have boxes from the start of December.
