Danny Graham and Adam Armstrong were Santa’s little helpers for the night, as they handed out tasty treats while raising valuable funds for the local community.

The Rovers stars teamed up with Blackburn Round Table for the annual Santa Sleigh ride around the streets of Blackburn.

Graham and Armstrong rode on the back of the sleigh with Santa Claus himself, delivering Christmas cheer to children and families in the Pleckgate area.

The strike duo were invited to participate in the festive fundraiser by Rovers’ back-of-shirt sponsor Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors.

The special guests proved particularly popular, as they were mobbed by local youngsters who were keen to snap up an autograph or selfie with the Rovers players, in exchange for a donation to charity.

Elton Ashworth, Managing Director at Watson Ramsbottom and Chairman of the Blackburn Round Table, said: “The Christmas Sleigh is a long-standing tradition around the Blackburn area that raises thousands of pounds for local charities.

“It was fantastic to have Danny and Adam on board for the Pleckgate leg of the ride – they really got into the festive spirit and made hundreds of children who come to see Santa on the route even happier!”

Santa’s Sleigh will be visiting the following locations over the coming week:

Wednesday December 12th – Brownhill
Thursday December 13th – Oakdale
Saturday December 15th – Lammack
Sunday December 16th – Fernhurst
Tuesday December 18th – Mill Hill Community Centre and Shadsworth Hub
