A group of kind-hearted Father Christmases, Mother Christmases, a smattering of elves and a grinch from Corby’s Danesholme estate walked from Corby to Kettering General Hospital yesterday to hand out presents to children on the Skylark Ward.

More than 20 pals, including pub landlord Cliff Morton and Pubwatch chair Mick Willey, gave up their Christmas eve and braved the cold to walk from The Viking Club via Great Oakley and Geddington to Kettering Hospital.
