More than 40 Santa’s dashed through Wimbledon Common in the bitter cold this weekend to raise money for a hospice.

The event took place on Wimbledon Common on Saturday, December 1, in support of St Raphael’s Hospice which supports people in Sutton and Merton.

Keith Witham, director of fundraising at St Raphael’s said:  "This is a really fun event for all the family, and the hospice appreciates the support everyone in Wimbledon gives to St Raphael’s Hospice". 

The event is expected to raise £3,000 for the hospice.

The Wimbledon Guardian is currently running its Give Your Quid Campaign in support of the hospice.
