Sleigh runs in Long Sutton, Holbeach and Sutton Bridge will help raise funds for Armed Forces charity




A team of volunteers have been busy over the past 12 months refurbishing the former East Elloe Lions' Santa Sleigh and are ready to take it on its rounds in Holbeach, Sutton Bridge and Long Sutton, from next Saturday (Dec 1).

They took over the sleigh after the Lions club sadly folded and have completely revamped it.

That team includes Ray Perkins and his wife Christine, Rick Garner, David Baker, Nick Thomas, Richard Hillam and Chris Brandon-King.
