Santa’s helpers Maggy Thomas, Ros Langley and Linda Bone were busy working in Linda’s garage in Rowledge in the last few freezing weeks before Christmas to make festive wreaths and decorations.

They did it to raise funds for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice – as they have done for years – and the trio smashed the amount they raised last year, handing over a total of £1,440.55 to the Farnham-based hospice care charity.

Entries are now open to join in Phyllis Tuckwell’s Jog on January challenge and kick-start the year with a bit of fun, while raising money to support vital local hospice care.
