Walton Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

This event will be time tabled and each street will know when santa will be in their street. We would like to pass a family Christmas bag and a bag to the elderly. There will be snow machines and as we drive down each street it will be magical. We will also go to the local residential homes and let the residents look from inside This idea can go ahead even in a full lock down as people will be advised to remain on their step as the float travels down and the elves will leave Christmas bag on their steps.

What we'll deliver:

  • Spread happiness to each street from Rice Lane Station to Sainsburys
  • Hire snow machine for the day
  • Hire float for 3 days
  • Hand out at least 500 Christmas bags
  • Visit at least 3 residential homes

Why it's a great idea:

The project will bring so much happiness and Christmas cheer to families, children and the elderly. Children will not be able to visit Father Christmas in the usual way and we are trying to keep the routine and magic alive. The carol singers will be dressed in victorian clothing which will appeal to the elderly residents. Due to Covid-19 we need a project like this to uplift people

Steps to get it done:

  • hiring float
  • hiring snow machine
  • purchasing christmas bags
  • purchasing crackers
  • purchasing selection boxes
  • purchasing mince pies
  • purchasing christmas puddings
  • making up christmas bags
  • getting victorian costumes and elf costumes
  • hiring inflatable grotto for float
  • getting amp etc ready
  • deliver
