Land Rover enthusiasts played Santa at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, delivering sackfuls of presents for patients.

A convoy of 4x4s participating in the Ryston Landrover Run visited the King’s Lynn hospital on Sunday, taking presents for elderly patients on West Newton ward.

The annual fundraiser saw 40 Land Rovers take part, including some from clubs such as Mudmunchers, Fenlanders and East Anglian Off Roaders.

The group set off from Ryston Hall to make its way to the hospital. Organiser Philip Shipp said: “We had a great day, it went so well. The drivers always look forward to the day and get dressed up for the occasion.

“We must have had eight or nine sacks full of presents, which is absolutely unbelievable.”

QEH chief executive Caroline Shaw said the gesture would make a real difference to patients over Christmas.
