The Santa Series 2018 for Cornwall Hospice Care is back for another season of festive themed fun.

Join us and our title sponsor, Ann’s Cottage Surf Shops, on Saturday 8th December for the exciting Santa Fun Cycle along the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow, finishing with the delights of the Christmas Festival.

Starting at 11:30am, you’ll take in the Camel Trail en route to Padstow dressed in your free Santa suit before joining us at the finish for a mince pie where we’ll also present you with your finisher’s medal.

Sign up today and kick off Christmas with a cracker, whilst supporting your local adult hospices and all that we do for those with terminal illness across Cornwall.

Your entry fee covers the cost of putting on this event and we ask that all runners please raise just £20 in sponsorship, which will on average, fund an hour of nursing care in our hospices, thank you.

Can you do it? Yes you can!

This exciting, festive 8km cycle is a perfect distance and fun for all the family. Bike hire can include trailers or baby seats.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
