St Catherines Hospice - Light up a Life 2005

The Santa Special ran between Hull and Scarborough on Saturday 3rd December 2005, with stops at all stations. Presents were given to the children, mince pies for adults along with 'goodies' from Northern Rail. This hopefully will become an annual event. Totally manned by volunteers it raised money for The Railway Children and Teenage Cancer Trust both registered charities did well, with passengers giving generously.
