Swindon's Santa is returning this year!

Father Christmas will be back in Swindon this weekend

12 December 2023

Santa is coming back to Swindon this Christmas to help two families who are going through tough times.

For the first time since 2020, Santa will soon be stopping off at four locations across the local area in the run-up to his busiest night of the year.

In the coming weeks, he will be spreading goodwill and raising money to help the couple mourning the loss of their seven-month-old baby and the parents of a young boy diagnosed with a rare form of cancer shortly after his fourth birthday.

The funds will pay for a memorial bench in Coate Water that pays tribute to Rico and Cherisse Richards' daughter Elsie, and support the Turner family as Garry and Shona's son Cody goes through chemotherapy.

The jolly North Pole native will also be making an appearance at this weekend's game vs Barrow, appearing at the Club Shop and Ticket office, as we at the club have donated signed shirts and other STFC-branded merchandise to show our support for the cause.
