HOPE House is gearing up for a day of festive family fun in Nantwich next weekend.

The children’s hospice is hosting its Santa Dash from 11am on Sunday, December 10, with participants able to run, jog or walk 2.5km or 5km.

The route is suitable for all ages, fancy dress is welcomed, and everyone taking part will receive a medal, mince pies and chocolate.

Hannah Penney, area fundraiser, said: “We are again very excited for this event especially after previous year’s success, and it’s lovely to see everyone taking part and enjoying themselves.”

Entry costs £5 for adults, while children accompanied by an adult can take part for free, and the money goes towards Hope House’s £6.3 million-a-year running costs.
