A regular feature of the run up to Christmas in the Cheadle area is the Round Table’s Santa’s Sleigh street collection.

Pulled by a 4 x 4 (The Reindeer are resting) the sleigh with Santa and sometimes Mrs Claus tours local streets handing out sweets to the children and wishing all a Merry Christmas.

At the same time a collection held with monies going to good causes in the local area.

This year club volunteers have helped out on two such rounds with Saturday 14th December being the 6 hour Tean round.

After a grueling marathon club Youth Secretary Kate Walker tweeted via the @SMU_FC account ‘Thanks for letting us help Santa tonight, just sitting down with a mince pie and sherry to recover, nice to see so many happy kids’

Said Club vice chair Martyn Hordern ‘a big thank you to those members who gave their time up to help to raise money for good causes, especially to the three who joined me and stuck at it for 6 hours in Tean’
