Your entry fee helps to cover our event costs. By raising sponsorship you will be helping to provide care for local life limited or life threatened children and support their families.

Super Santas run for FREE!

At this year's Santa Run we're challenging participants (mini Santa's are also welcome to take part) to raise £100 and in exchange for raising this amount you'll get your registration fee back!

What could your fundraising pay for?

We rely heavily on the local community to fund the majority of our activities, which is why with your support we can continue to make a real difference to life limited or life threatened children. The £100 you raise could go towards almost 3 hours of vital care for a child in one of our hospices. 

At each of of our 3 hospices we provide care, support, fun and laughter for children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families.
