Santas at the double in Birmingham to raise money for the Acorns hospice

IT was a sight destined to send youngsters wild with excitement but these Santas weren't delivering presents to Birmingham early this year.

Instead, 300 kind-hearted fund-raisers dressed up as Father, and Mother, Christmas to bring some festive cheer to sick children.

And they helped raise more than £20,000 that will spread joy to youngsters being treated by Acorns Children's Hospice. (Birmingham Mail)
