LAST Saturday's annual Santa Stroll in Ledbury saw the town centre fill with scores of red-suited men, women, children and even dogs with antlers.

This year the event, in support of the Madison Shelbie Trust, attracted more than 100 participants.

A spokesman said: Shoppers and visitors to Ledbury had a delightful surprise when so many Father Christmases, elves, dogs with antlers and even novelty trees braved the cold to participate in the annual charity family fun walk around the Town.

"Deputy Mayor Cllr Keith Francis even joined the fun."

Sam Jones, founder of the Madison Shelbie Trust remarked: “We had so much. Everyone has been amazing; we are so grateful."

The Madison Shelbie Trust exists to provide bereavement support at the labour wards in Hereford County Hospital and Worcester Royal Hospital for parents and families affected by the loss of a baby during pregnancy, labour, birth or shortly afterwards."
