In a brilliant display of Christmas spirit, the Myton Hospice Santa Dash in Royal Leamington Spa delighted participants and spectators as a river of Santas flowed around the Pump Room Gardens and through the town.

Over 1260 Santa’s, their families and their decorated pets arrived to support this incredible local charity by running 5km.

Stephanie Kerr from BID Leamington said “It was also wonderful to see the support offered from local businesses including this years sponsor Dennis Eagle.

“Coffee Architects were there with coffee and treats, Gusto sponsored the water and offered FREE mulled wine if you were wearing a ‘Santa Hat’ at their Regent Court restaurant.

“Entertainment came from the fabulous Frozen team, MC Simon Button, the support Minion, the fun Santa’s Grotto and more – all who donated their services … so there are a lot of thank-you’s to give to volunteers and local people!”

“Well done to Myton Hospice and everyone involved!”

Have a very Merry Christmas! Ho ho ho …
