Ripon Lions are a small group of local people who volunteer their time to help raise funds that are then distributed back into the local area. We help out other charities along with individual and group requests. Every penny donated is put back into the community.
The Santa Sleigh is our main fundraiser each year. We try to visit as many streets in Ripon as possible as well as getting out to the local villages. It is run entirely by volunteers with this year seeing the biggest support from other local groups including Ripon City Netball Club, Guides, Scouts, VX, Ripon City Panthers, NYP Tri and Ripon Beginners Running Club as well as others.
We are very grateful to all those who volunteer and donate.
The planned route of the sleigh is posted below, however, the route is subject to change at short notice especially if the weather is bad. The Ripon & Nidderdale Mumbler News Page will stay in touch with the Ripon Lions to share any details of changes to the schedule as they happen.
Amendment to Wednesday 5th: Sleigh One will finish off Palace Road, then up to North Lees and then on to Tanfield. Sleigh Two will do Marton Le Moor and Copt Hewick on the way back if time permits.
