Posted by Kat Heath on 27 Nov 2023
Epsom Rotary are pleased to confirm the dates for this year’s street collections with Tilly the Train and Father Christmas around Epsom Town and they are excited to confirm they have added new routes this year – yay! Tilly the Train has been a feature of Epsom Rotary Street Collections for a number of years and has brought many smiles on faces over time, along with Father Christmas able to chat to children and bearing a small gift.
Christmas is a special time for us all.
Monies collected will go to local charities including:
Epsom Girl Guiding, who will also take part in some of the collections.
Tilly the train was invented as long ago as 1970 by a group of apprentices from Epsom Coaches and has been the highlight of the Epsom Rotary Christmas Street collections and the approach will be by Christmas music and a band of Christmas elves!
