Santa's run for charity

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.

The challenge was to run five times around the enchanted forest at Stockeld Christmas Adventure. The event, in it's third year, aims to raise funds towards the five million pounds needed annually to keep the hospice running.

Organisers say they also hope to increase awareness of the facility amongst the residents of Wetherby.
