8th December 2018 Events image

Online registrations are now closed but you can still register on the day between 9.30am-10.30am at the start of the camel trail near Bridge Bike Hire.

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 11am, 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.

Online entries close at midnight on Tuesday 4th December.
We will be taking entries for the Santa cycle on the day – payable in CASH only. You can sign up on the day between 9.30am-10.30am.

If you are planning to enter and pay on the day we recommend that you arrive in plenty of time to sign up, sort out hire bikes if required, get your santa suits on etc.

Your registration fee includes cycle hire if you need it – although you are more than welcome to bring your own cycles. If you do take up the hire cycle option, these are provided by Bridge Bike Hire situated just off the start of the Camel Trail at Wadebridge. It is your responsibility to ensure that any hire cycles are returned to there by the end of the day (8th Dec). If you plan to come back later in the day, please make your own arrangements with Bridge Bike Hire if you want to return out of hours and consider bringing head torches as there is no lighting on the Camel Trail.

Come prepared to decorate your suits with lights, tinsel, deely-boppers and be entered into the prize for the best dressed. Also there will be prizes for best dressed dogs and buggies.

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.
