The reindeers will be in the form of a Land Rover kindly provided by Chris Favell Cars, The Dock, Ely.
A door to door collection will be taken to provide funds to support charities, good causes and International disasters.
The sleigh will start its journey at 6pm and travel along the streets approximately in the order shown – with the last street being reached by around 8pm.
