It was Christmas Eve when a Santa Claus arrived, a little early it has to be said, at The Shetland Times offices at Gremista.
Sandy Stewart, a taxi driver for many years in Shetland, has been collecting for the Shetland MRI scanner appeal over the last three weeks, raising £1,702.
He has all been around Lerwick, especially during the late-night shopping, attending 20 parties and the town’s pubs and clubs.
He said: “I can’t believe it’s so much. My best night was £640 achieved on a Saturday night.”
Sandy, a well-known Aberdeen FC supporter, has even been known to don the Santa suit when big games come calling.
