Christian Aid’s South West Regional Manager Martin John Nicholls, based in the Parade, and his team are digging out their plimsols and stumbling along to Southampton Common on December 12 to attempt to run 5km to raise a minimum of �500 for Christian Aid.

He said: “It’s fair to say the team fitness levels vary somewhat but we’ve read all about training and are determined to finish the 5km as a team.

“One thing is for sure, dressing up as Santa and running 5km is definitely not how any of us usually spend our Sunday mornings!
