Dean Lake’s Santa Cruise is an annual Yuletide skate which sees riders push their way through London in aid of his Longboards For Little Hearts charity.

The Knaphill resident then donates all proceeds to the Children’s Heart Federation, who helped save the life of his daughter Olivia, four.

Shortly after her birth, baby Olivia was forced to undergo open heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect known as tetralogy of fallot.

Starting at Hammersmith Apollo and concluding 20 miles later in Windsor, more than 50 longboarders donned the famous red and white of Santa to rake in more than £1,000 for the cause.

Cheering them on through their journey were generous passersby as well as the Mayor of Slough, Shafiq Chaudhry.

Dean said: “The Santa Cruise is something I work really hard towards and it’s rewarding to see so many people turn out and donate.

This year we’ve had more sponsors than ever, including Mindless Longboards, Shark Wheels, Lush Longboards, Bournlands Longboards, SP8 Boards, Smile Longboards and Foo A Rage.

“I’d like to thank them all for their backing.”
