The Altisidora Inn, Bishop Burton, Beverley held their first 5k Santa Dash to raise funds and awareness of the Steve Prescott Foundation last weekend. Thirty brave Santas battled the treacherous weather conditions to complete the course. They were able to enjoy festive fare and the cosy warmth of the 19th century Grade 2 listed hostelry on the completion of the run.

Organisers Diane and Mark Milsom said ' Everyone had a great time, and are already looking forward to next years run. Hull FC star and SPF ambassador Danny Washbrook was an absolute legend AGAIN! Not only helping promote via social media, but also starting and finishing the run. A magnificent £500 has already been raised for the Steve Prescott Foundation,with a bit more still to come.'

A massive thank you to everyone who took part in the inaugural Santa Dash and to Mark and Diane for their organisation and hospitality.
