In December 2019, Essex Ford marked 10 years of providing specially signwritten vehicles to power the Billericay Lions Santa Sleigh on its tour around Billericay to raise funds for charities.
For 11 days from 11th December, the Santa Sleigh – powered by Essex Ford's Ford Kuga in a unique Christmas design – will follow the routes listed below to bring a little magic to the children of Essex in return for donations!
Over the years, Essex Ford has really enjoyed designing these special vehicles to help raise over £60,000 for local charities and organisations, such as Brighter Opportunities through Supported Play, Basildon Borough Citizens Advice Bureau, Billericay Youth Town Council's Urban Games, Lukes Counselling Service for Children and Young People, the Neighbourhood Watch scheme, and Hamelin House. Some funds have also gone to young people needing worthwhile sponsorship and those with disabilities.
International charities have included Chernobyl Children's Project, WaterAid, the Lions International Disabled Swimming Gala, and Lions Sightsavers.
