Santa Dash for Willen

Santa Dash for Willen Hospice this Christmas!

The Dash For Willen Hospice is back this year on Sunday, 19 December at 10am. Best of all it won’t be virtual like last year’s was!

Willen Hospice hope that 1oos of people will once again dress as Father Christmas to walk, run or jog around Willen Lake North. Don’t forget – this event helps to raise funds for your local charity hospice.

The event is open to people of all ages, and dogs are welcome to take part too.

Tracey Jago, Events Manager at Willen Hospice, said:

“Our Santa Dash has become an annual favourite for many families and has become a staple in their Christmas routine as a great way to mark the start of their festivities. We truly missed not having it last year, and we can’t wait to see everyone dressed up in their Santa suits.

Whether your Dash is in memory of a loved one, a chance to do something fun as a family, or simply a change to your usual Sunday run, by taking part you’ll be helping to support our vital work.”

About Willen Hospice

Willen Hospice provides complex and individual care to all adults affected by life limiting illness in our community. It also supports families and friends.  Our care is assuring, equally accessible and advanced and often takes place in people’s own homes.  It is free to the patient and provided by a highly skilled team of professionals. We receive less than a quarter of our funding from the NHS and need the support of the local community to provide us with financial stability to ensure that we are always there to care.
