A running group got into the Christmas spirit and dressed up in festive outfits to raise money for charity.

From Santa Claus himself, to Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, members of the Havering ‘90 Joggers ran proudly through the streets of Hornchurch and Upminster on Sunday in all sorts of costumes.

The run was completed in aid of children’s charity First Step based in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch.

On the day, a total of £277 was collected for the worthy cause and a further generous donation was made by the owners of the Upminster Taproom in Sunnyside Gardens.

Havering ‘90 Joggers member Jeff Fenton said: “The club, along with the Hornchurch charity, would like to thank the residents in the area for their support.

“We hope that we brought some festive fun to people in Hornchurch and Upminster as well as helping the children.”

Chief executive of First Step Mark Halls said: “We are extremely grateful to the Havering ‘90 Joggers for their commitment and for raising over £277 for First Step. We are reliant on fundraising and donations to ensure we can provide support for families of babies and preschool children with special needs and or disabilities.

“I would also like to thank all those individuals and businesses who have so generously along the route from Hornchurch to Upminster.”
