BAD weather was overcome by Father Christmas to raise a record sum for Bognor Regis Rotarians.
Santa Claus braved the wet weather for his annual tour organised by Bognor Hotham Rotary Club. His willingness to climb aboard his illuminated sleigh in all conditions brought in a best-ever £7,684.91.
Spokesman John Holman said: “All the money raised is ring-fenced for local charities and good works.
Anyone who knows of a deserving cause that would benefit from funding should get in touch. Letters should be sent to Stuart Hutchison, c/o The Royal Hotel, The Esplanade, Bognor.”
