The 2.5km event will start at 1pm after a special Christmas warm up. Special prizes for the best dressed pushchairs and best dressed dogs.

This year we will be asking for all adult Santa’s to raise a minimum sponsorship of £25 (to be paid into the charity no later than 6 weeks after the event). For EVERY £25 raised your name will be put into our Christmas Draw where you have the chance to win a week at Hengar Manor in our luxury 4 bedroomed, Scandinavian style lodge, which can sleep up to 8 people and is situated near Bodmin, Cornwall.

To help you fundraise why not set up your online fundraising page. Every donation we receive, big or small brings a poorly child’s Wish closer to being granted. To help us make a difference and to get your fundraising started, Visit
