Chichester Lions Club launched its Christmas Carol Float on Friday at the Lodge Graylingwell.
President Richard Cowell welcomed Chichester deputy mayor Peter Evans and Father Christmas to an evening of carols led by the Chichester City Band.
While Santa was giving out toys to the children, Mr Cowell presented donations totalling £800 to Stonepillow, Augusta Court, Tozer House and Chichester Food Bank.
