Santa is coming early for locals in Millom as a charity fundraiser tours the town on Monday night.

The Haverigg Inshore Rescue Team are looking to raise money for their group by bringing Santa's sleigh to south Cumbria.

From 6:00pm on December 11, the sleigh will start at Old Moor Gardens before covering the rest of the area.

The team hope to delight children and families on Palmers Lane, Grammers Croft, Mountbatten Way, Queen’s Park, Moor Road, Butler Street, Moor Park and Hodgson Gardens.

Depending on the weather and time constraints, the sleigh might even come to Holborn Hill, Cambridge Street, Duke Street and Horn Hill.

The heavy rain on Saturday meant that the tour of Haverigg was postponed, but the sleigh is expected to return on December 16 instead.
