Merry Christmas everyone!

Back by popular demand this year... you can follow Santa in real-time using our Santa Tracking App, helped by the team at Cleveland Mountain Rescue, as he makes his magical journey around Great Ayton in December. All bucket donations taken on the night will be donated to All Saints' Church, Great Ayton, to help towards the recent roof damage to the church during storm Arwen.

The event is now finished.

Thank you for your support!

Sponsor Santa's Sleigh

Local businesses located in Hambleton and Redcar and Cleveland are invited to sponsor the Santa Sleigh Tracking app whilst helping to raise much-needed funds for All Saints' Church, Great Ayton following the damage to the roof following storm Arwen. A really fun opportunity to showcase your business and attract new customers. We will be donating 10% of all sponsorship to All Saints Church.

The Santa's sleigh tracking app follows Santa around Great Ayton when he makes his annual visit to the village. The app has received amazing feedback as it lets people know when Santa is in real-time on their mobile phone, tablet or desktop, so they can pop out to say hello when he's passing by!

“The Santa sleigh app was amazing for me. It meant that I was able to keep track of where the sleigh was so we didn't miss it. Having a 2 year old and 7 month old on my own that night this was a game changer. I didn't have to keep dragging the kids out down the road to see if I could hear the music. We kept watch on the app and then went down when it was near. Saved me lots of time and the kids loved seeing the display. Would definitely recommend the app” - Rebecca P (Great Ayton)
