Picture Gallery - Santa Dash proves to be a feast of festive fun

PRANCERS, Dancers and Dashers braved the cold to take part in a festive fun run to raise money for a Doncaster cancer charity.

Friends of Sandall Park’s third annual Santa Dash saw around 240 residents put their best foot forward clad in their Christmas clobber to give Aurora - a charity that provides support and beauty

treatments to cancer patients - a boost.

And despite the cold weather the rain managed to hold off, unlike last year when the temperature was a frosty minus eight degrees and the event had to be postponed.

Patron of the charity TV presenter Carolyn Hodgson started the race and was also on hand to give out medals after the event.

Barbara Senior, Aurora fundraiser, said: “It was a great day we were very lucky with the weather the rain managed to hold off until about an hour after the race.

“We want to thank everyone who took part and Carolyn Hodgson, the Fitness Village at Doncaster Dome who organised a very comical warm up, Ready Steady Store, who looked after the outfits for us, and Friends of Sandall Park who helped organise it and acted as marshals on the day - we couldn’t do it without these people.”

The money is still coming in thick and fast from the event, that is set to take place again next year.
