WATCH: Hundreds of Santas cycled through Cork in aid of children's charity

Over 400 Santas turned out in Cork last night for the Santa Cycle  in aid of Scoliosis Straight Ahead in conjunction with CMRF.

The annual event, which is now in it's second year, was a big success with hundreds of people getting on their bikes to help children who are on hospital waiting lists awaiting treatment.

The 7.5km cycle left from Goldbergs pub at 7.30pm and participants were decked out in Christmas decorations and lights in the hopes of bagging the prize for best costume.

Straight Ahead Ireland took to Facebook following the event to thank all of those who took part saying: "These kids that have gone through pain and surgery and are out the other side because we can get them in extra time because of kind people like yourselves who want to help."
