Join a run with a festive twist this Christmas to raise money for a local hospice.
The 5km Santathon, to raise money for St Francis Hospice, will take place on Sunday, December 2, at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club.
Already signed up to take part for the third year running are husband and wife Adam and Clare Harvey, from Rainham.
Mother-of-two Clare said: “We both really enjoy the Santathon; it’s something we can do together and there is a nice atmosphere.
“We also know the money we raise is supporting a good cause because St Francis Hospice helps make the lives of people affected by life-limiting illness more comfortable.”
If you would like to take part and either run, walk or jog the course on your own, or with family and friends, you can book a place by calling 01708 771427 email firstname.lastname@example.org or register online at www.sfh.org.uk.
Places are £10 for adults and £5 for children and include a free Santa suit.
