Following on from last year’s success, parents can book a meeting for their child or children to sit in their house and link up with Santa in his grotto.

Where Santa will be visiting

Wigan Rotary president Santi Nandi said: “After last year’s disappointments due to the pandemic, this year we are delighted to have arranged some appearances for Santa.

“However, due to the continuing uncertainties, we will not be knocking on your doors so listen out and when you hear the music and come on out and say hello to Santa in person.

“The return of our Zoom with Santa means children will again be able to chat to him and enjoy the fully personalized experience. Santa will have one-to-ones with each child from his Lapland grotto and recreate the magic of this festive tradition as wonderfully as it can possibly be.

“Wigan Rotary Club trust everyone will feel able to make a donation which will cover the costs of the event and help to continue all the work we do in the Wigan community.”
