Santa will be making his rounds with Rotarians from the end of November.

If you think a visit from Santa would be right up your street then Forfar Rotary Club is about to make your wish come true.

The club has joined forces with Santa to provide support for his traditional annual street by street tour prior to Christmas Day.

He and his helpers will be calling in different areas of the town between November 28 and December 17 during which a house-to-house collection will be made to help those for whom Christmas Day is just another day when they strive to deal with yet another day of suffering and survival.

This situation can be and is closer to home than most people probably realise so as usual the club is looking to the generous people of Forfar and district to play their part and once again and fill its collection boxes.

The collections will, weather permitting, be between 6pm and 8pm.
