Drivers of Stagecoach buses are dressing up in Father Christmas costumes to raise money for charity.
Passengers in Sunderland are being greeted by the red-suited drivers as part of a fundraising drive for Sunderland Cardiac Support Group.
Driver John McGrath, who Sunderland residents may recognise from TV shows Come Dine With Me and The Chase, said: “The reaction we’re getting from people has been great.
“They’re are waving and smiling and it’s been fantastic.
“It’s all for a good cause and it’s bringing the community together, so why not.”
