Well here we are still in a world of uncertainty, but what is absolutely certain is that we unfortunately can’t deliver our much loved annual Santa runs around the county this December. These are normally such important fundraisers for us and this year is no different. Silly Santas is supporting Terry’s Bed Appeal and you, being silly, will help keep our beds open and supporting those families needing our care over the festive season.
We’ve had a think and we’ve come up with an idea everyone can enjoy even if lockdown continues. You don’t have to step outside your home if you’d prefer not to, and while running isn’t compulsory this year, being silly is.
We’d love you to do to take on our challenge of doing “ Something Silly in Santa Suit” and help raise those vital funds to keep our beds open. It can be absolutely anything at all – it’s up to you and your imagination to do it your way! And every sign-up will receive a FREE Santa Suit delivered to your door!
Run, walk, or jog!
You can choose the distance – a mile, 5k, 10k or a half marathon – it’s up to you. And where you do it – as part of your daily exercise from home, around your garden or up and down your stairs. It’s also up to you if you complete your distance in one go or spread across the month – this really is your gig!
Wear a Santa Suit to Work
Ideal for the workplace, you can wear your suit, for a day, a week, all month! Although its fair to say they are not that robust ! But you get the idea. We can provide you with a collection bucket so the public can donate if you are public facing and/or you can set up a JustGiving page to raise funds (see the button at the top of this page). It’s a good opportunity for some office high jinks and posting your photos or video on social media too with a donate button.
A Silly Santa Cycle
The very lovely people at Bridge Bike Hire in Wadebridge, who normally support our Wadebridge to Padstow Santa Cycle have offered to support us by providing free bike hire to our Silly Santas for the duration of December. On production of a screenshot of your entry receipt and obviously resplendent in your Santa Suit you can hire a bike and cycle on the Camel Trail to Padstow or Bodmin and back, stopping for some essential Santa refreshments en route. Get sponsored, raise some funds and have a fun day out. Please contact Bridge Bike Hire once you have registered with us to book your free bike(s).
Silly Santa Singing
Get your Tik Tok groove on and get singing along in your Santa Suits to your favourite Christmas tunes with your Elfie Stick and post on Facebook with our free donate button.
Santa Bake Off
How about getting the kids in a Santa Suit and let them loose in the kitchen making Gingerbread to sell at school or to family. Or maybe a Silly Santa mince pie eating contest whilst enjoying some mulled wine with a couple of friends (strictly within social distancing rules of course) and perhaps a spot of Santa Karaoke?
