A Northwich supermarket has helped raised cash for The Joshua Tree charity.

Colleagues at the Tesco store brought more than 50 presents for Santa to hand to children taking part in the toddler run of the Elf Run at Marbury County Park.

The charity, on Venables Road, supports families across the North West living with the life-changing experience of childhood cancer.

The Elf Run comprised a 5k run for adults and a 2.5k Elf Toddle for little elves.

Nathan said: “The Joshua Tree does excellent work supporting families affected by childhood cancer and we are delighted to have been able to help with this fun, festive event and to raise money for such a good cause.”
