The Santa sleigh organised by The Lions Club of Great Yarmouth is about to embark on its fundraising tour across the borough.
Every year people across the borough fill the Lions buckets with anything from pennies to pounds.
Spokesman Chris Stanley said: “We never forget every penny counts. You can be assured that everything we collect and more is given back to the community each year to both individuals and organisations who contact the club. So please when you see the sleigh and Santa’s Lion helpers give whatever you can, no matter how small as it all goes to a worthy cause somewhere.”
