The Mayor of Farnham and 3rd Farnham Scouts gave Santa a helping hand on his tour of Rowledge, raising money for Farnham food bank.

Councillor Alan Earwaker joined Scouts in collecting donations to support those struggling to put food on the table this Christmas, while Santa bellowed “ho ho ho” and reminded children to get to bed early on Christmas Eve.

It came as part of Farnham Round Table’s 2022 Santa’s Sleigh tour, which came to a close in central Farnham after a merry month of fundraising for the food bank.

This year’s Santa’s Sleigh has raised £4,769.16 for Farnham food bank.
