FUNDRAISING Father Christmases are wanted for the annual Spalding LIVES Santa Fun Run/Walk.

The event sees participants dress up as Santa Claus for a 5k walk or run around Spalding town centre, starting from the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field, and raises money for LIVES First Responders and another charity to be decided at a later date.

The event costs £10 for adults and £5 for children, with entrants able to borrow Father Christmas outfits if needed.

Anyone who raises £50 or more will get a free T-shirt to mark the achievement.

Organiser Gordon Kirk said: “We had to cancel it last year because the weather was so bad so it will be nice to put it back on again this year.

“I’ve been around taking leaflets to the schools and we want to try to get as many people as we can.

“I’d like everybody to join in and make it a real success.”

The event takes place during the town’s big Christmas celebration weekend – which includes festive shopping and the Christmas lights switch on.

To sign up call Gordon on 01406 426784. Entrants must register by November 30.
