Cornwall Hospice Care's Santa Series is here!

Cornish charity Cornwall Hospice Care will kick off its 2017 Santa Series in Truro on Sunday 3rd December. This year’s Santa Series sponsored by Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management includes four Santa Fun Runs in Truro, Padstow, Helston and Falmouth, as well as a Santa Cycle from Wadebridge.

Hundreds of people are already signed up to put on the red suit and raise money for the charity that provides 24/7 specialist care across St Julia’s Hospice, Mount Edgcumbe Hospice and in the community with their new Neighbourhood Hubs. You can sign up to join them at Truro on Sunday 3rd December, Wadebridge and Padstow on Saturday 9th December, Falmouth on Saturday 16th December and Helston on Sunday 17th December.

Oli Hoare, Head of Fundraising at Cornwall Hospice care says “We are very excited about this year’s Santa Series. These events are always full of festive cheer! Seeing hundreds of people come together to raise money for our charity is always inspiring. To all those who have already signed up I would like to say a huge thank you for helping to fund the specialist care we provide. To all those thinking about it, it really is a case of the more the merrier! Funds raised from your registration fee and sponsorship will go directly towards funding our bereavement counsellors, nursing staff, doctors, catering staff, therapists and housekeepers that make our hospices safe and supportive places to be during difficult times.”

All ages are invited to take part in the events. Registration costs £12 for an adult and £7 for a child, this includes your Santa suit, with under 5’s taking part for free – there’s a mince pie and a medal for every Santa across the finish line. Cornwall Hospice Care look forward to seeing you soon. You can sign up at www.cornwallhospicecare.co.uk or telephone 01726 66868 (option 3).
