Santa and his sleigh are spreading joy across Colchester... at the end of May.

He has been joined by a number of friends, including Spiderman and Harley Quinn, to take a tour of the town.

Along the way he is raising money for Colchester Foodbank and Colchester Community First Responders, two charities working overtime during the coronavirus crisis.

Organised with the help of Colchester Roundtable, Colchester Community First Responders, Colchester Community Group, Colchester Anti Loo Roll Brigade and councillors the event is also hoping to cheer up the town's youngsters.

The convoy is blasting out classic hits along the way and Santa and his elves are dancing and waving to residents. 

Twitter user @emmalr_x captured this video of the convoy passing her home.
