The annual St Michael’s Hospice Santa Fun Run takes place on Sunday in Alexandra Park.
The charity is urging folk to don Father Christmas outfits or festive fancy dress and meet in the park at 10am at the bandstand. There is a two or five kilometre course. Pre-registration for the event is £5 or £8 on the day. The Hospice is also encouraging participants to raise money through sponsorship and all proceeds from the event will go direct to St Michael’s Hospice.
Amanda Hildreth, community fundraiser at St Michael’s Hospice, said: “Children, adults and dogs are encouraged to dress up for our festive Santa Fun Run. The run is open to everyone and is suitable for all family members with prizes for the best costume. Last year we saw Santa’s, elves, giant presents and Christmas puddings, it’s always lovely to see so many people come out to support their local hospice while having fun. However it doesn’t have to be a race you can run, walk or jog it’s up to you.” To register contact Amanda Hildreth on 01424 456371 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
