THOUSANDS of pounds have been raised for a worthy cause thanks to a visit from Father Christmas.

The Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent Lions Club collected around £2,500 after arranging for a Father Christmas sleigh to visit children.

The money will be distributed to charities the club supports. Lions president Pat Homer said: ‘It has been a great success again and proved a wonderful opportunity for us to meet and introduce Lions International to so many of the residents.’
