Norfolk Santa dash raises lots of cash
A swarm of Santas could be seen careering through Norfolk villages at the weekend when more than 100 people donned the famous red and white suit for a charity cause.
The Christmas-inspired event was the brain child of Claire Tidy who organised for 104 people – and dogs – to dress up as Father Christmas and bike or walk through Irstead, Neatishead, Ashmanhaugh and back.
The aim was to raise money for the Women V Cancer charity and fund Mrs Tidy to complete a 350km charity bike ride through India next year.
Speaking about the event on Sunday, the 47-year-old mother-of-two from Irstead, near Barton Broad, said: 'I was overwhelmed with the number of people that turned up and I really couldn't be more thankful for people's generosity. It really helped me on my way to my fund raising goal.'
The event raised �824.50 towards her target of �2800. If you wish to donate money, contact Mrs Tidy on 07920842242
