Intrepid cyclists dressed as Santa braved sub-zero temperatures for a 20-mile ride in aid of Shooting Star Chase.

Richmond and Twickenham Times:

Riding their chariots complete with Christmas decorations, 45 cyclists rode from Whole Foods Market, Richmond, to the Hampton hopsice via Richmond Park and Twickenham, to deilver presents to children.

The event on Saturday, December 6, organised by Njinga Cycling, also raised an additional £1,200 for Shooting Star Chase.

Togo Keynes, from Njinga Cycling, said: "Despite the chilly start, seeing the smiles on the little children's faces made it all worthwhile.

"A massive thank you to all the Santa's who turned up in the festive spirit and gave so generously both with presents and donations."
