It’s time for some festive cheer, courtesy of Santa, charity Shirley Round Table and MotorServ UK.
MotorServ UK, a Solihull premium auto service and Car sales centre, is delighted to share that after a trying year, Santa will still very much be coming to town!
In partnership with Shirley Round Table, the car dealer has stepped up to help ensure that jolly old St Nick can still do his rounds while his reindeers rest ahead of Christmas Day. Santa’s Sleigh is a 50 year tradition around Shirley, with generations recalling seeing or meeting Santa ahead of Christmas.
This memory is one that MotorServ UK MD Kamran Saleem shares: “I remember when I was younger living on Ralph Road and looking forward to seeing Santa in his sleigh. It’s a brilliant feeling to know that MotorServ UK can help make that happen this year – complete with festive lights and music, just like previous trips. This year, Santa will be travelling in style and making use of our Audi Q7, complete with LED displays that will let people know how to donate. He’s in safe hands and I’m honoured that we can support such an important charity and the local community that is so close to my heart.”
Pete Williams from Shirley Round Table says: “It means so much to us that somebody with such strong local connections stepped up so quickly to help us out. Kam has not only offered us a car to tow the Sleigh and somewhere safe to store it, but has also paid to adapt it at his own cost and dedicated his time. It’s all about putting smiles on the faces of the community after a difficult year and at Shirley Round Table we’ve been doing all we can to support local causes and individuals in need, so each donation will make a massive difference.”
MotorServ UK has it on good authority that Santa is looking forward to seeing everyone in Shirley and Hall Green. Social distancing is going to be observed so no door knocking this year unfortunately – he is on a very tight schedule to see everyone! His sleigh will depart on Monday and tour between 6pm and 9pm and will be out every weekday night until just before Christmas.
