Speedy San­tas do bit for char­ity

The Northern Advocate - - Local News -

Hun­dreds of San­tas swarmed through Whanga¯rei’s Town Basin and Kerik­eri Do­main on Wed­nes­day night. The San­tas — and a few, elves, rein­deer and an­gels — com­pleted a fun run or walk of al­most 3km in length, all in the name of char­ity. It was part of The Great Santa Run, which took place at 6.30pm in lo­ca­tions around New Zealand to raise money for the Graeme Din­gle Foun­da­tion. North­ern Ad­vo­cate pho­tog­ra­pher John Stone headed along in Whanga¯rei to cap­ture some of the fun.

Tamsin Jor­dan, Daisy Mur­phy, Caitlin Guest and Amaya Jor­dan pose in front of the gi­ant Christ­mas tree be­fore their run.

The fleet footed San­tas set off from the Canopy Bridge.
