HUN­DREDS of peo­ple dressed as Christ­mas pud­dings for a char­ity race at the week­end.

SignHealth’s in­au­gu­ral Amer­sham Christ­mas Pud­ding Race took place in Old Amer­sham on Sun­day.

More than 200 peo­ple fol­lowed ei­ther the 2.5km or 5km route, both of which started in Broad­way, Old Amer­sham.

The prize for Best Dressed In­di­vid­ual went to Martin Pounce, who dressed as a waiter hold­ing a Christ­mas pud­ding.
