FATHER Christmas helped raise £566.33 for charity by visiting Sonning Common.
The village’s second annual Santa on a Tractor event took place on Tuesday last week to raise money for the village youth club Club SC and the Ways and Means Trust in Peppard. A trailer was decorated by villagers and carried Father Christmas and his elves more than four-and-a-half miles around the village, finishing in Widmore Lane.
Co-ordinator Helen Coyne said: “It was such good fun and it was really lovely to see all the children. A few got a ride too. I think the bubble machine was a hit.”
She thanked Martyn Cooper for donating the sound system and the volunteers who helped on the night,
Paul Jenkins, Richard Mackenzie-Black, Craig Henderson, Alison Baillie, Karen Lowe, Matthew White, Matt Hopson, Maria Gallardo Diaz, Becky Jenkins, Zoe Shorter,
Amanda Watkins-Cook, Howard Cook, Emma Ashleigh, Eduardi Penabad and John Lambourne.
The initiative started last year after Goring, Woodcote and District Lions Club folded.
