Thank you to our runners, their sponsors and the street team who cheered them on at the Santa In The City event this week.

This Wednesday and Thursday, five intrepid runners — Tayo Adesegun, Jatin Patel, John Russell, Marlon Sampedro and George Somers — donned Father Christmas outfits and took to the cold, dark and drizzly streets of London to run for STAMMA. So far they've around £900!

A huge thank you to the runners, everyone who turned up to cheer them on and for everyone who sponsored them.
