Halton Haven Hospice is celebrating the success of its first ever Santa Dash
which took place on Sunday. Hundreds of local residents and business
representatives arrived in the early hours of Sunday Morning to take part in
the 5km dash.
The event ran smoothly with the Silver Jubilee Bridge only closed for 15
minutes to allow the group of Santa’s to run across the main centre of the
bridge in celebration of the Bridges 50th Anniversary.
Despite the damp weather, it did not dishearten the Santa’s spirits. The event
saw over 500 Santa’s taking part on the day which not only created a fantastic
atmosphere but the event also raised vital funds for Halton Haven Hospice.
There was also a prize for the best ‘pimped out’ costume which was provided
by Dimma.com and was awarded to Margery Shorleson.
Ciaran Clotworthy, Events Manager from Halton Haven said; “We would like
to thank all the Santa’s and volunteers that took part as without them, it
wouldn’t have been the success it was!”
Halton Haven Hospice would like to say a big thank you to Halton Borough
Council, Cheshire Constabulary, Halton Housing Trust and Anthonys Travel
for all their support and without their help this event would not have taken
All monies raised will go direct to the Hospice in order to provide their special
kind of caring to the residents of Halton.
