Ipswich: Round Table will be spreading festive cheer again this Christmas

RUDOLPH and his band of happy helpers will hit the streets of the town next month to spread festive cheer and help local charities.

The reindeer’s tour of Ipswich, organised by Ipswich Greyfriars Round Table, will this year raise cash for two deserving Ipswich-based charities, Brooke’s Wish To Walk appeal and Mason’s Magic.

The recognisable float, which for many signifies that Christmas is almost here, will set off on its journey on December 3 and will tour the town until December 21.

Simon Cooper, chairman of Ipswich Round Table, said “Most of us local to Ipswich remember growing up hearing the sounds of Rudolph coming and the excitement of seeing him with Santa and his sleigh.

“Our members, many of whom now have children of their own are looking forward to giving as much support and help to these two very worthwhile local causes.

Rudolph, Santa and Round Table volunteers will be knocking on doors for the two good causes for the annual tour of the town as part of a tradition that has been running for more than four decades.
