People up for a festive challenge can now sign up for St Catherine’s Hospice Santa Runs.
Every entrant to the St Catherine’s Hospice Santa Run will receive their own Santa suit or hat for runners under six.
There are now four venues to choose from: Horsham Park in Horsham, Chartham Park in East Grinstead, K2 in Crawley, and Queens Park in Caterham so no matter where you are, you can dress up, have fun, and raise money for a fantastic local charity.
Michaela Clements, Events Fundraising Assistant at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re looking forward to this year’s Santa Runs being bigger and better than ever before.
“It will cost St Catherine’s around £180,000 to provide free hospice care to local people over the 12 days of Christmas and events like our Santa Runs make a huge difference in helping us reach that goal.”
Bob Toon, Managing Director of Gatwick Group, sponsors of the St Catherine’s Hospice Santa Runs, said: “Many of our staff have had personal experience of the incredibly important work that the hospice does and we have sponsored the Santa Runs for 2 years now.
“The number of people who join in to show their support and help raise important funds is truly inspiring. That’s not to mention what an impressive sight it is to see so many santas running around the courses by themselves or with friends or family.
“It’s an honour to continue supporting St Catherine’s Hospice through sponsoring these events and we couldn’t be happier that this source of income is growing, with the addition of the K2 venue.”
