It’s that time of the year again when supporters of a popular charity in Adderbury are being urged to dress up as santa and take part in a special fun run.

Katharine House Hospice is gearing up for its 6th Santa Fun Run at Spiceball Park, with this year’s event taking place on Sunday, 6 December at 11am.

There is a 2.5 mile-route or a 1km route to choose from and those who take part will receive a santa suit to keep and a medal, drink and mince pie when you have finished. Online registration is now open at www.khh.org.uk or phone the

Sheila Norton, events fundraiser, said: “Our annual Santa Fun Run in Banbury is the perfect way to start the festive season. By taking part in this wonderful Christmas event you can enjoy a family day out and raise vital funds for hospice care.

“We would love to see a record number of Santas on the day to enjoy our Winter Wonderland so sign up today and your support will make a huge difference to local patients and their families.”

Online registration is now open at www.khh.org.uk or by phoning the fundraising office on 01295 816484. Entry is £13 for adults, £7 for children aged between six and 16 or £35 for a family of four. Children aged under six are free.

Participants are asked to raise minimum sponsorship of £20 (£40 per family) and singles, families and teams are all welcome.

Katharine House is an independent hospice, relying heavily on the local community to enable it to provide its services. The annual running costs are over £3.5 million and since 2010, the Santa Fun Run events have raised more than £120,000.
