Father Christmas’ brand new sleigh helped him to raise a record amount in Bridlington this year.

He travelled around the town on his brand Santa-mobile over two weeks and, helped by his friends from Bridlington Round Table, collected £5,578.

On social media, the group said: “Santa has finally left Bridlington, but what an eight-day tour we have all had!

“You wonderful, warming, festive, entertaining people that have followed us since our reveal of Santa’s new sleigh at Tesco in November until the very end of West Hill’s route, you beautiful people came together as a community and helped raise more money than ever - a whopping record of £5,578 .

“For this, we thank you for your kindness and your donations.”

The amounts collected on each night were:

Queensgate (Sunday 2nd) £881

The Round Table added: “Comments and feedback motivates us to give back to the young, the old, the people who need us the most. As we have said before demands are even greater now, without this we could not do it, and that’s why we enjoy doing it.”
