It was a race to the finish line at the annual Reindeer Race in the Nicholsons Centre on Saturday.
Organised by Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club for the sixth year running, the festive, fun-filled event pulled in the crowds to watch competitors wind toy reindeer and sleighs across the finishing line.
Races lasted approximately 5 minutes each and brought lots of laughter and fun to the masses. Shoppers also go to meet Bruno and Patch, mascots from the charity Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, where all money raised at the event will be donated.
This year we had extra special guests join in the fun in the form of two puppies in training. Ozzy a one-year old Black Labrador and Leighton a five-month old Cocker Spaniel stole the hearts of many shoppers and were only too happy to roll over and have their tummies stroked! Both dogs also loved their larger-than-life-sized mascot friends with Ozzy playfully tugging on Patch’s tail!
Adam Hunter, Rotarian and event organiser, commented, “The dog mascots definitely help to pull in the crowds and to see the joy on children’s faces as they rush to give them a hug is priceless. Thank you to the generosity of shoppers the day raised over £200 for the charity, which we are thrilled about”.
