A Christmas themed charity fun run has raised nearly £350 to secure the future of Sidmouth Primary School’s minibus.

The school’s PTFA organised the town’s first Santa Stomp which saw 60 youngsters take on the one mile route through the Byes in aid of its bus fund.

The runners festively dressed up as Father Christmas, elves and reindeers among the many fantastic outfits on display.

Seth Holloway was named the winner of the fancy dress competition with his Willy Wonka inspired outfit.

Poppy Crouch was first to cross the line, Archie Griffiths was the winner in the five to nine category and Alfie Rowson in the under five race.

After completing the race the runners enjoyed festive treats and tried their luck at the raffle to win prizes including gift vouchers for Dukes.

Anna Rowson from the PTFA thanked staff and parents for marshalling the course, Sidmouth Running Club, event sponsors Every’s Solicitors and the Co-operative for supplying teas, coffees and water.
