As part of our shirt sponsorship of Blackburn Rovers we recently had Rovers strike duo Adam Armstrong and Danny Graham team up with Managing Director and Solicitor, Elton Ashworth, as part of the Blackburn Round Table annual Santa Sleigh Ride throughout the streets of Blackburn.
Armstrong and Graham teamed up with the big man himself, Santa Claus, to bring festive cheer to children and families in the Pleckgate area.
The duo appeared especially popular, being surrounded by young fans eager to get memorabilia signed and the now ever so popular selfie with their idols, in exchange for a donation to charity.

Elton Ashworth, Managing Director at Watson Ramsbottom and Chairman of the Blackburn Round Table, said: “The Christmas Sleigh is a long-standing tradition around the Blackburn area that raises thousands of pounds for local charities.
“It was fantastic to have Adam and Danny on board for the Pleckgate leg of the ride – they really got into the festive spirit making hundreds of children who come to see Santa on the route even happier whilst helping to raise vital extra funds for charity!”
The final leg of Santa’s Blackburn Sleigh will be on Tuesday 18th December at Mill Hill Community Centre and Shadsworth Hub.
