Hospice supporters in Nantwich are being urged to don their Santa suits and take part in an annual fund-raising race.

St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice is organising the “Santa’s Day Out” event at Cheshire’s Oulton Park Racing Circuit on Sunday December 8.

They hope to make this year’s event the biggest yet  by inviting local people and business teams to sign up.

Participants can don their Santa suits and run, walk, bike, rollerblade or even scoot around the famous racing track, all in aid of the hospice.

This year, there will also be a Christmas market with food stands and gifts, plus an array of attractions and games for the whole family from 11am to 3pm, with the dash starting at midday.

Jane Thompson, hospice head of event management, said: “We can’t wait to see the track brimming with the famous red and white outfit.

“We’re looking for supporters, families and corporate teams to make this the best event yet.

“This year we will have even more categories. Along with Dashing Santas, Strolling Santas, Biking Santas and Rollerblading Santas we will be having Scooting Santas.

“You can complete the 5km circuit at your own pace returning to a well deserved certificate.”

All adult Santas get a full Santa suit and youngsters will get a set of fun Christmas headwear.

Entry to the event is £12 for adults and £5 for Children.

Jane added: “In an attempt to increase our numbers we are not insisting on sponsorship as part of the package. You can chose to take part just for fun.

“However if the hospice is close to your heart and you can fundraise, we have lots of ways you can do so and we do hope our fantastic supporters will take part in aid of the hospice’s invaluable work.

“If you can raise £100 a person or £150 a family for St Luke’s then we will refund your personal registration fee.”
