Dash for a good ‘Clause’

Calling all Santas!

It’s time to dust off your Santa boots and get in the festive mood for Jersey Hospice Care’s fun Santa Dash around the streets of St Helier, during your lunch break on Thursday 5 December.

It’s all about the taking part. Santas are invited to run, jog, scoot or walk the short mile long course.

The Dash starts at 12:15 at Liberty Wharf Shopping Centre with a warm up at 12:00. Registration will open at 11:45, when the Santa suits will be handed out.

Marina Brockbank, Community Events Co-ordinator for Jersey Hospice Care commented, ‘The Dash is always so much fun – it’s not every day you see a “sleigh” of Santas dashing around the streets of St Helier! The number of dashing Santas grows every year, with many office teams entering and we hope that this year will be no exception. It’s ideal for those on the hunt for something a little different to do this Christmas. It’s a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit and raise funds for Jersey Hospice Care, helping us to continue providing expert care for our community this Christmas and for many Christmases to come’.

It costs just £12 for an individual and £50 for a team entry. This includes your free Santa suit, finisher’s medal and refreshments when you finish. We also encourage our Santas to raise a minimum of £20 in sponsorship for Jersey Hospice Care. Full details of the route and how to register are available from our website: Registration is open on our website until midnight on Wednesday or you can register on the day.  We are looking to raise £2,000 which could pay for 4 weeks of Tots and Toys sessions for Children aged 0 -5 years with a life limiting condition.

A big thank you goes to Mitchell Building Contractors who are sponsors of this event.
