A sack-full of Santas geared up for Christmas by cycling through north Norfolk to raise money for charity.
The Trunch Fatboy Cycle Club held its annual charity cycle on Sunday to raise money for Cromer-based charity, About with Friends.
Fifteen cyclists met at North Walsham dressed in Santa outfits and onesies and led by organiser Maurice Page, dressed as an elf.
After paying their entrance fee - and fines for anyone not Christmassy enough - they headed off to the Hill House cafe in Happisburgh for their first stop and a chance to pass the bucket.

From there to the Lighthouse at Walcott, the Ship at Mundesley and the Crown at Trunch ho-ho-hoing all the day. They ended up at Trunch Social Club, tired, a little merry but with buckets full of change to the tune of £400 which they handed over to About with Friends.
About with Friends are a Cromer-based charity that support adults with learning disabilities to live the lives that they choose.

These members need specialist resources such as sensory rooms and chill-out spaces so the conversion is expensive. Donations like this are gratefully received by the charity.
