More than 140 people donned red robes and white beards to take part in the Bexhill Santa Dash on Saturday (December 5).

Setting off from the De La Warr Pavilion, they completed 2km and 5km routes in bracing winds before receiving their medals and enjoying a well earned hot drink, courtesy of the De La Warr.

The event is organised each year by Bexhill Lions and sees people taking part to raise money for their chosen charities or good causes.

This year there were awards for the best decorated pram, wheelchair and dog.

Lions president Paul Fleming said: “This is a great event that the whole town can be involved in and raises money for good causes.”
