Father Christmas and his sleigh made a visit to Fleckney and Kibworth 25 years ago this week – and collected more than £510 for charity.

Santa gave balloons and gifts to children while families gave pet treats for the RSPCA in return. Fleckney’s St John Ambulance division spread the festive goodwill by donating the float. More than 200 tins of pet food were donated. The picture was first used in the Mail on December 21, 1989.
