No, your eyes were not deceiving you - that really was an ear doing the Alton Santa Dash this month!
Specsavers Ear wows the crowds
The Alton Specsavers team decided to put their audiology team through its paces by sending a colleague out dressed as an ear this year. It felt appropriate - after all, Santa needs to be able to hear all the requests from children and The Ear felt it was his duty to have a friendly word with all the Santas to remind them to get their hearing checked this month. The Santas agreed and reassured The Ear that they would also check their vision to ensure it's tip top before riding their sleigh on Christmas Eve.
Winning a prize
The Mayor and others in attendance appreciated the hard work of The Ear - for spreading a good healthcare message and also running in a very heavy costume. The Ear was delighted to win a prize for the best fancy dress!
The Ear has a lovely time and wanted to say what a pleasure it was to meet you all on the day.
