On December 4, setting off from Framingham Earl High School at 10am, sporty santas will set off on the 5km course around the area.

They will be raising money for EACH's Nook Appeal, a charity initiative aiming to improve children's palliative care across Norfolk, the plans for which include a purpose-built children's hospice in Framingham Earl.

Tal Williams, EACH nook appeal community fund raiser, said: 'We're thrilled to be hosting our first Poringland Santa Run, to raise money for our nook appeal. The local community have been so supportive since we announced our plans to build a new hospice in Framingham Earl – we are so grateful for their support.

'We hope this Santa Run will not only be a great event for the whole family but a chance to get everyone in the local area excited about the appeal.
