Santa Fun Day to bank vital cash for The Shakespeare Hospice

Leamington Editorial 20th Nov, 2022   0

SACK races and welly wanging are just some of the activities lined up for a Santa Fun Day in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice.

Whole families are invited to don Santa suits for the fun-filled obstacle course on Saturday December 10. And all the cash banked will go to the Stratford-based hospice to enable it to continue providing vital community care services throughout the festive period.

There will also be a Christmas Fayre, raffle, tombola and craft stalls, as well as mulled wine and mince pies.

While youngsters will have the chance to post their Christmas wish lists in Santa’s Post Box.

Bridget Richards, Events and Community Fundraiser, said: “Christmas is a very busy time of year for the hospice. Our clinical teams will be caring for patients, their loved ones and carers in the local community all the way through Christmas, including on Christmas Day. Events like our Santa Fun Day are essential in ensuring that we can provide the highest standards of palliative and end of life care in the local community.

“This is an event that the whole family can get involved with. We would encourage as many people as possible to brave the cold, put on their Santa suits and take on the course to raise as much money as possible for The Shakespeare Hospice.”

The event is being held at The Home Guard Club in Tiddington from 11am to 3pm. Tickets for the activity course cost £12 for adults and £8 for children (aged 5 to 11) and include a Santa suit and a medal.
