Rudolph has become a popular figure in the local communities in Leicester since he made his first appearance in 1949 and, he has gone on to help raise more than £300,000 over the years for a number of charities (with the help of volunteers and firefighters). During his time he has had a few make overs to keep him going and now, he is looking better than he ever has.


Last year, they managed to raise a huge amount of money which was shared amongst:

  • Adapt
  • Friends of Sycamore Court
  • Leicester and Leicestershire Animal Aid Association
  • Leicestershire Down’s Syndrome Group
  • Leicester Children’s Holidays
  • Vista
  • When You Wish Upon a Star

All the charities were very grateful for the money they received and are now able to put this into helping out the people who need it. Rudolph will be hitting the streets again in the coming weeks, hoping to raise more money for charity. See below for the dates, times and route schedule.

And there’s me thinking I chose TPD Goose the quiet one because she would be nice and calm and wouldn’t give Ella a hard time. LFRSRudolph photo
