A father and his seven-year-old son are teaming up to take part in this year's Stamford Santa Fun Run.
Businessman Simon Fraylich and son Leo will be running the 5k at Burghley Park on Sunday, 8 December in aid of homeless charity Shelter.
Leo, a pupil at William Hildyard CofE Primary School, chose the charity which his father has supported for several years both personally and through his Market Deeping-based company Power2SMS.
Simon told Deepings Nub News: "We've started running around the block together.
"It's proving to be a great bonding exercise and we are both enjoying the training and looking forward to the day itself.
"Leo is naturally sporty - he plays football for Deeping United and has karate lessons with Inspired Martial Arts at Market Deeping Coronation Hall.
"I used to be a keen runner and, although I'm still in shape, I think I'm going to find it harder completing the 5k than Leo.
"After Leo saw someone on the streets in Peterborough he asked if we could help raise funds for the homeless. So it's been a great opportunity to talk about Shelter and the importance of supporting charities.
"I have supported Shelter personally and through my businesses for many years now and strongly believe in the work they do.
"Being homeless is bad enough at any time of year but around Christmas time must be just devastating.
"Shelter does great work and we are looking forward to raising a little bit of money for them."
The father and son have a £200 fundraising target and have already raised £140. If you'd like to help them hit their target then click on the red button below to visit the Justgiving page.
