A sackful of Santas made a festive dash to the finish line to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care.

Approximately 200 jolly old elves swapped sleighs for sneakers when they took part in the school-led event at Poltair School today.

The pupils have already raised more than £1,800 for the charity, which runs Mount Edgcumbe Hospice at St Austell and St Julia’s at Hayle.

Rose Wiltshire, Cornwall Hospice Care event co-ordinator, said "We would like to thank all the students and staff who helped to organise, or took part in the Poltair School Santa Fun Run, as well as the parents, friends and families who have sponsored a Santa, or helped to decorate a suit."

The Poltair Santa Fun Run is the last of 10 events in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care, which in total has seen over 2,000 Santas walk, run or cycle to fundraise for the charity.

Over £25,000 has already been raised in total with more money to come from sponsorship in the new year.
