Christmas arrived early in Chepstow yesterday when over 200 Santas raced the 3.5km across the M48 Severn Bridge.
The Santa Run raised around £7000 in aid of children’s hospice, Ty Hafan. The charity’s services - which include respite care, learning and play activities, end of life care and family support - are provided free of charge to families throughout Wales.
Craig Ananin, Events Manager and Organizer said: “We thought this would be a great way to start the festive season. Christmas is all about children and this is a great time to remind people of all the hard work done by Ty Hafan.”
