Jephsons Shopfitters, of Maun Way, donated materials to young people from REAL Education to build a Santa Sleigh – which raised more than £1,330 for the Clipstone community.

A Jephsons spokesman said: “The company wanted to help the collaboration for the Santa Sleigh as the concept always raises much-needed funds for the area.”

Ian Jephson, Jephsons commercial director, said: “We are always happy to donate or get involved in a local fundraising initiative that gives back to the local community.
