Children, parents, teachers and pets donned their Santa outfits at the weekend to take part in the North Luffenham Santa Fun Run.

Pupils from St Mary’s and St John’s Church of England Primary School joined in the festive fun on Saturday, raising over £250 for the school.

The Parents and Friends Association (PFA) organised the fun run for the pupils to help raise vital funds for the school.

Jo Skelham, joint vice-chairman of the PFA, said: “We are really chuffed, it was a fantastic event and everyone had big smiles on their faces.

“We wanted to do something different to help raise money for the school and this event was perfect as it was something seasonal for all of the kids to get involved in.”

More than 45 children joined in the run around North Luffenham and the school field, dressed in their festive Santa hats and Christmas jumpers.

Along with Father Christmas and two polar bears who turned up on the day to join in the fun.

Afterwards all of the Santas enjoyed a well-earned hot chocolate with lots of mince pies.

The money raised will help go towards the funding of extra curriculum activities within the school, including more school trips for the pupils.
