Community group members from Billingborough gave up their time before Christmas to help Santa raise money for worthy causes.

This is the third year that the group of about 15 people have built a sleigh to travel with Santa around the villages of Billingborough, Pointon, Threekingham, Osbournby, Horbling and Folkingham dressed in elf outfits.

This year, they collected £2,085 for Ovacome, an ovarian cancer charity.

In previous years, they have raised money for Motor Neurone disease and brain tumour research.

Sweets were donated by Alan W Page & Co (Seeds) and Tesco. Debbie Chessum from the group said: “We thank all those who came out to support us.”
