All of the money collected goes to local charities and good causes.

Lucy Perkins, president of the Rotary Club, said: "We are so grateful to the supermarkets who let us display the sleigh and collect, to those who house and maintain the sleigh and to all those who turn out to see the sleigh and donate to the rotary charities.

"It’s really heart warming to see the excitement and wonder of the children as we take the sleigh around; it puts the joy of Christmas back into our hearts.”

The club welcomes new members and meets for dinner on a Tuesday evening at the Farmers Club in Bury St Edmunds.
