TWO charity workers at Crewe got into the festive spirit to raise cash for a children's hospice.
Toni Pequena and Sharon Fowles dressed as Santas for a sponsored two-and-a-half mile Santa Run in aid of the Hope House children's hospice in Oswestry.
The 34-year-olds are both shop assistants at the Market Street charity shop and as the youngest members of staff they volunteered for the charity's annual Christmas run. They raised £305 in sponsorship.
Toni said: 'It wasn't too strenuous as we knew it was for a good cause so that kept us going. The event was for all abilities so you could walk or run and there were disabled people from the hostels also taking part.
'We dressed up as Santa with our names flashing on the back of our outfits. I bought us some cowboy hats for a bit of extra fun. There was a present for the best dressed Santa but sadly we didn't win.
'We want to say a big thank-you to everyone who sponsored us. Customers have been great putting their pounds in and it has all added up. Sharon dressed up as Santa every day in the week before to encourage people to sponsor us.'
