Everyone is welcome to come and join in the fun run for just £10 (and £5 for children) to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Not only will runners be given outfits to dress up as the festive Saint, but will also be contributing to the £2.5million running costs of the charity, which offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy.

As Marks and Spencer’s charity of the year, they have donated £300 worth of Christmas gifts to the hospice and throughout the year have helped them raise more funds through auctions and tombola’s. Santa himself also paid a special visit to the hospice to deliver presents to the children before he travelled on to the McArthurGlen’s East Midlands Christmas tree lights switch on event.

The Santa Dash will be the first ever in aid of Bluebell Wood and will be a 1.1mile circuit around the centre starting at 8.30am. Visitors of all ages are invited to sprint, skip or stroll around the centre and in addition to their Santa outfits, will receive a goody as a ‘thank you’ which includes a 10% discount card to shop at the great range of premium high street and designer brands that are already up to 60% less.

Donna Goodwin, Marketing Manager at McArthurGlen’s East Midlands, says, “The Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is vital to the North East Midlands community as it is the only hospice in the area that supports children with shortened life expectancy and their families. The Santa Dash will be fun for all the family and should be a laugh for spectators too. Everyone can grab a nice warming treat afterwards from the food court, Starbucks or our newly opened Costa.”
