Richard Clay, lead volunteer at Crick & West Haddon Scout Group, said: “This year we were conscious of the increase in cost of living, and one of our volunteers, Anna Scantlebury, suggested we collect donations for the local foodbank as we travelled around the villages.

"We were amazed how generous everyone was, and would like to thank everyone that came out to see Santa for their donations.”

Santa’s helpers who took part in the six night run were made up of 26 leaders and 37 Scouts. They collected over 250kgs of donations, which was delivered to the Rugby Foodbank.
