St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice has announced the launch of its annual 2012 ‘Wear a Santa Suit Fortnight’ to help raise much-needed hospice funds, whilst instilling some Christmas cheer into the community.
From 26 November to 10 December, St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice is encouraging Christmas cheer to descend early on Cheshire with its annual ‘Wear a Santa Suit Fortnight’ campaign, which culminates in style with the popular annual Santa Dash at Oulton Park Racing Circuit on December 9.
Whatever your day-to-day commitments, you’re bound to raise plenty of smiles and help to raise money for the St Luke’s if you go about your usual activities dressed as Father Christmas!
To get involved in ‘Wear a Santa Suit Fortnight’ all you need to do is pay a small registration fee of £10, which entitles you to pick up your Santa suit from St Luke’s. After that, it’s up to you! Encourage your colleagues, friends and family to sponsor you to wear your Santa suit with pride for a full two weeks!
This is a fabulous way to enjoy festive fun and frolics whilst raising money for a very deserving charity, which is a vital part of the Cheshire community.
Anyone can have a go and there is no upper or lower limit to how much sponsorship money you can raise. So buckle up your belt and spread some festive cheer throughout Cheshire.
The fortnight comes to a spectacular finish with the Santa Dash at Oulton Park Racing Circuit.
The hospice’s head of event management Jane Thompson said: “You can run, walk, bike or even scoot around the famous race circuit. You can complete the 2.5k circuit at your own pace returning to a well deserved certificate and a welcome bacon sandwich.
“Entry to the event is £15 for adults, which includes a Santa Suit, and free for Children (but they must register in advance to be allowed on the track). We ask our Santas to try and raise us some sponsorship to support the hospice. There is no minimum amount we just ask you to do your best.
“You could even raise your sponsorship by being one of our bag-packing Santas in a local supermarket in the lead up to Christmas.”
