Xplore Dundee’s Santa drivers are dusting off the red suits this December to spread Christmas cheer and raise funds for a local foodbank.  Although the pandemic means the group will not be able to hand out sweets to young passengers as they have done in previous years, they hope people’s spirits will be lifted by spotting Santa behind the wheel and perhaps even hearing a festive ‘Ho Ho Ho.’

The fundraisers will also not be taking cash donations. They are instead encouraging anyone who wants to support them to visit their online fundraising page ( or to text to donate by sending the word SANTABUS followed by the amount in pounds (eg SANTABUS 5) to 70085.

All money raised will support the work of the foodbank at Lifegate Community Cafe in the city’s Whitfield.
