THERE’S no chance of Santa not being able to make his Christmas deliveries in Shrewsbury after local dealer, Greenhous Nissan, stepped in with the loan of a formidable Nissan Navara.
The dealership has provided the powerful pickup to support Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club in their Christmas Santa Sleigh programme, which sees Santa make appearances throughout the region until Christmas Eve.
Julie Bates, Dealer Principal, Greenhous Nissan, said: “At Greenhous Nissan we like to engage with our local community and the opportunity arose to support the Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club in their Christmas Santa Sleigh programme.
“They needed a strong vehicle with a tow bar to pull Santa’s Sleigh to the various points where Santa would be engaging with the community, so we created a festive design for our Nissan Navara and made it available to them for the Christmas period.”
With its 3.5-tonne towing capacity and 4×4 capability, no matter how full Santa loads it up with gifts for the good boys and girls, it can take him wherever he needs to go.
The pickup’s first outing with the sleigh was on November 14th, at Shrewsbury’s Christmas lights switch on where Santa welcomed children aboard the sleigh to tell him what they would like to receive for Christmas.
From December 3rd, the Navara and the sleigh will then make six community visits and make 11 appearances at supermarkets in and around Shrewsbury.
