As the festive season gets underway, more than three hundred and fifty charity fundraisers braved the cold this morning and dressed as Santa for a special fun run in aid of Martin House Hospice.

A Chesterfield couple have transformed their house and garden into a winter wonderland with a massive display of Christmas lights, all in aid of charity. For the past eight years, Malcolm and Lesley Muldoon, from Ankerbold Road, Tupton, have put on the show in return for a donation.
More than 30,000 bulbs light up the property, and the garden is home to a collection of Santas, a herd of 4ft reindeer, an 8ft high snowman, seals, bears and giraffes. Since 2004, the couple have raised around £15,000 which has been given out to local charities.
The Muldoons are switching the lights on for the first time this season at 5pm tonight. One of the charities to benefit again this year is Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity - which is aiming to raise £1.3 million for a new Cancer Treatment and Research Suite at Weston Park Hospital.
