The Holmes Chapel Partnership was formed in 2012 and received funding from Cheshire East Council for the last 10 years. However, due to budget cuts, we have now lost our funding. Since our formation the Partnership has been responsible for the organisation and delivery of many community activities including the Holmes Chapel Christmas Market and the Santa Sleigh Runs. 


Each evening we are assisted by different local organisations who man the sleigh and bring Santa to your door. All monies raised are placed in the Santa Sleigh Fund, which is then distributed to the organisations who support the sleigh runs.


The local groups who will benefit from the Sleigh funds in 2023 are: Holmes Chapel Scouts, Holmes Chapel Guides, Goostrey Scouts, Brereton Scouts, Holmes Chapel Community Pre-school, Holmes Chapel Viking Explorer Scouts, Dane Sound Radio, Holmes Chapel Primary School PTA, Hermitage Primary School PTA, SibelCo, Tangent & 41 Club, Bridge the Gap and HC Velo, who will all receive a share of the charitable donations.
