Firefighters in Yaxley helped spread some festive cheer with the help of Santa Claus.

The crews have organised the Christmas Ride to raise cash for charity for more than 40 years, and have been out with the festive sleigh in Yaxley again this week raising money for The Firefighters Charity, SANDS (Stillbirth And Neonatal Death Society) and British Dyslexia Association.

Jamie Bovington, a firefighter at Yaxley who is organising the event, said: “The Christmas Ride is a fantastic opportunity for the firefighters to get out into the local community and play festive music, carols and generally spread some festive joy while collecting for very worthy charities.”

The crew will carry out their final ride tonight and will be at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre on Sunday from 10am until 4pm.
