An enormous 39ft Father Christmas is set to land in Abington Park on Wednesday, November 23 for the second year running to raise awareness for the Santa Run and Walk next month.

The giant inflatable Santa made an appearance last year at Franklin’s Gardens and is starting to become a Christmas tradition for the town.

Event organiser, Chris Dolan, said: “We want the Santa to be a sign of Christmas for Northampton and to let people know that it’s not long until the Northampton Santa Run & Walk. It’s a great time to start fundraising for our chosen charities.

“Christmas isn’t known for being inexpensive, so we invite people to come down to see the Santa for free.”

The family-fun Northampton Santa Run and Walk event will be taking place on Sunday, December 11.

This year’s chosen charities will be Cynthia Spencer Hospice, The Lewis Foundation, Northampton Health Charitable Fund and The Rotary Club.
