Around 60 people donned the Santa outfit in an attempt to get into the Guiness World Records book.

Some 100 jumpers were needed to secure a place in the book, but the event was still a huge success with more than £1,200 raised for the Anchorage Trust.

The Santa bounce was the idea of James Sinclair, funding coordinator at the Trust.

Mr Sinclair, 30, said the charity was making great strides in supporting young people in the town, especially when it came to decent housing and that he was keen to help.

'We had a few people pull out late in the day due to illness, but there was still a very good turn out and it was a fantastic event and everybody there was buzzing after it finished.'

The stunt took place at the Jump Warehouse in Main Cross Road, Great Yarmouth.

To sign up people had to pay £10 and that included their jump, a Santa suit, jumping socks and a mince pie or sausage rolls.

Festive jumpers were also welcome to raise their own additional sponsorship.
