Santas will be hitting the streets of Dagenham
Hundreds of Santas will be running through the streets of Dagenham this Sunday as they raise cash for Saint Francis Hospice.
The Santathon, originally planned for December but cancelled due to the snow, will see hundreds of residents, staff and Dagenham and Redbridge footballers pull on a red suit for a 5km run.
There are still places so any one keen to join the fun is encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
The run will start at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club, in Victoria Road, at 11am. Any money raised will be split between Saint Francis Hospice in Havering-atte-Bower and Leukaemia CARE.
Santathon places are �10 for adults and �5 for children under 16. Every entrant gets a free Santa suit.
