President Charles Williams and Lion Mike Strophair delivering presents to Nicol at Unit Stratford Hospital on Christmas Day morning

A huge thank you to Simpsons, Clifford Lane, Stratford-upon-Avon for checking the electrics and the lovely lights that are around the sleigh.

Eden Suzuki Garage gave Santa yet another lovely surprise -it was an early Christmas present!  They helped repair his sleigh and are loaning him a car with a special tow-bar.  This means that he and his sleigh were towed in better style and in safety. 
Thank you Eden Suzuki Garage on the
Birmingham Rd in Stratford upon Avon!  

Santa is now resting after his big night on Christmas Eve.


Shakespeare Lions would like to thank all the residents of Stratford upon Avon for all their support  by coming out to see him whilst travelling around the different areas and also at the various static points.

He was delighted to see the children and the elves enjoyed helping as well

(although sometimes a little mischievous!)

All the money raised will be given to local charities in Stratford.

Over £2,000 was raised which is fantastic!

The Christmas Raffle draw took place on 18th Dec at Morrisons

with the 1st prize going to Ellen who is 93 years old,

and absolutely thrilled at winning her first ever raffle!








A grand hamper including many Christmas favourites was kindly donated by Morrisons

and  Sheree Houghton, Customer Service Manager, did the honours

accompanied by Tim Hewson-Stoate of Shakespeare Lions.

Lions Diane Mason and Liz Salt were also present.

The Lions are very grateful to Morrisons, and everyone that donated prises,

but particularly to the people of Stratford upon Avon,

for their support in helping us raise funds to help those less fortunate.

On top of his busy schedule Santa managed to visit several cares home in Stratford upon Avon including The Limes and Scholars Mews

Santa's sleigh needed a special part this year. As it is quite old the part was difficult to find but Gisbourne's came to the rescue and not only found the part but let the elves have it free of charge - what a hero!!

Pleased as Punch   ........

Santa is very happy with his new sleigh, while

one of his Elves snuck in a last minute touch up. 

Well done, Elves!

This year Shakespeare Lions were able to have a charity stall at the Stratford upon-Avon

Christmas riverside market.
