Last Saturday, the lovely Trisha Owen and her army of elves, as well as Paddy (the highway man) and his sturdy lovely Daisy and Cindy (the wonderful horses pulling the Santa Sleigh), and not forgetting Fiona and her little stylish festive Shetland pony Pebbles, came together today in the east coast village of Rudston near Bridlington to raise funds for the iHV and Rudston Youth Group.

Some wonderful young people and nearly young/young at heart folk turned out to support. It brought some fab festive cheer to villagers and they were very generous in their support.  Rosie the Elf Visitor, the mascot from the Way of the Roses Cycle Ride, had a ball and was mostly well behaved!

It was a wonderful afternoon from getting the horses from the fields and dressing them up, sorting the sleigh to spreading festive cheer.

Thank you so much Trisha and please do say a very big iHV thank you to all the wonderful folk who gave their time for this.  They all certainly seemed to enjoy it!
