Santa arrived a bit earlier than expected in Oxford this year.
Supporters of Oxfordshire-based Helen & Douglas House dressed up as loveable Father Christmas over the weekend to promote the Santas on the Run event on December 10.
Dozens of Santas of all ages took part in the festive promotion to raise funds ahead of the event and get more people to sign up.
The charity and hospice works to support children and young adults with terminal illnesses.
The Oxford Paper is among the sponsors for this year’s event along with Jack FM, Hawkwell House Oxford and Benito’s Hat.
