Around 200 people dressed as reindeer helped raise money for a hospice in Colchester today.

The fundraisers descended on Castle Park for the 3km Reindeer Dash, complete with antlers and flashing noses, to support the St Helena Hospice.

The family event was said to have been a lot of fun and very successful by the charity’s events fundraiser Angie Diggins.

“The Reindeer Dash was a great day and everybody enjoyed dashing in their reindeer antlers and flashing noses,” she said.

“We had lots of laughs and fun throughout the day and the participants got to have a look around the stalls at the Winter Wonderland too which was lovely.
