Each year members of Barnstaple and District Roundtable take Santa and his helpers around the town on successive nights throughout December.

Cheques were presented to 10 charities and local organisations at a presentation night held at Lilico's by club chairman Paul Fryer.

He said: "I'm immensely proud of what we have achieved and would like to thank everyone who has taken part in the Santa Sleigh.

"Special thanks goes to our sponsors, Redrow Homes, Positive Sparks, The Voice and Adam and his team at Barnstaple Nissan in Pottington for loaning us a Nissan Navara so we could tow the Santa sleigh in comfort."
