Chance to apply for Sleigh Pull donations

SCARBOROUGH Round Table is inviting local charities and organisations to apply for a share of the 2010 Sleigh Pull donations.

The funds were collected over two weeks in December and will be distributed to a range of worthy causes.

Ben Kitto, the group’s community service officer, said: “Yet again, the generosity of the people of Scarborough has produced a superb collection of approximately £3,000 which will be distributed back into the community during 2011.

“The sleigh event is truly a wonderful event - both inspirational in terms of the looks of wonder from children’s faces when they see Santa passing their house on a sleigh and also humbling when you witness the kindness and support people offer others by way of donations to help the less fortunate.”

He added: “The funds are to be put back into the local Scarborough community with particular focus on children and young people.

“We would like to take this opportunity to invite any organisations who would like a share of the funds to apply to the Round Table and explain why they would like funds and what the funds will do in terms of helping their particular organisation or group.”

All applications for funds should be made following the application process found at

Any applications or recommendations for funds should be received by the June 30 and funds will be awarded in August.
