Hundreds of Santas flooded the streets of Bristol on Sunday to raise money for a children’s charity.

More than 1,500 fundraisers took part in the Santas on the Run event, which is organised by Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Families dressed in festive outfits and beards and filled the city with Christmas cheer as they completed the 2km fun run.

CHSW hopes to raise £65,000 from the event, which will go towards funding 24-hour doctor care.

Charlton Farm currently supports 223 children with life-limiting conditions and provides vital support for their families.

Santas on the Run was sponsored by Bristol Airport and flybmi this year.

Ethan Jones, who is supported by the hospice, took part in the race with his mum Lisa.

She said: “I can’t thank the hospice enough. I do not want to think where we would be a as family unit without this service.”
