Litter Picking Santa.

By lifesnapper  
Or: Santa's Claws.

Hi all and many thanks indeed for the wonderful response to my previous upload, very much appreciated as always. Smile

And yes, it's Rochester again and still with the Christmas theme. The Elf, Lauren, is the team leader of a small band of volunteer's which she has named; Cleaning with Meaning. It was lovely to bump into these two characters as they were going about there business and, unusual to see Santa filling his sack with rubbish rather than Christmas present's. However, I hope the Children of Rochester don't wake up to a pile of empty plastic bottles and bits of cardboard on Christmas morning. Smile

All the best to all and take care out there,
