The self-proclaimed Fatboys Cycling Group, of Trunch Social Club, has raised nearly £7,000 for local causes since the Santa ride started, with more than £4,000 raised this year.

The event also marked a third year for the group's support of Nansa and About with Friends, two local charities supporting children and adults with disabilities.

Group chairman Maurice Page, from Gimingham, organised the event, and dressed as Scrooge from Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

He said: "Both charities offer a wide range of support for people with disabilities in our community."

Thirty cyclists took part on Sunday, December 8.
