Cornwall Hospice Care’s Santa Fun Run came to Newquay on Sunday, with almost 100 jolly Santas taking to the beaches of the resort in their Santa suits. Many stopped to watch as Santas of all ages, shapes and sizes, some pushed in buggies and some four legged friends walked, jogged or ran the route from Towan Beach to Lusty Glaze and back raising funds for the Cornish charity.

“We are thrilled with the turn out” said Rose Wiltshire, Events Fundraiser for Cornwall Hospice Care ”We would like to thank everyone who took part or volunteered, Newquay BID and Newquay Aquarium as well as the people who stopped to cheer our Santas on the route”
