Santa Dash Record Smashed

Remember last December when you dressed up as Santa and ran, walked, strolled, meandered and pootled around Hollingworth Lake with 615 other red and white adorned Springhill supporters?! 

Well, not only did you help smash our previous record for the most Santas by an amazing 215 but you also played a central role in smashing the fundraising total!

In 2014 The Santa Dash or Dawdle raised £15,500.  So far the 2015 10th Birthday Santa Dash or Dawdle has raised (drum roll please)…..


Now that’s truly Santa Cl-awesome!

From all the doctors, nurses, patients, families, volunteers and staff at Springhill Hospice and from your community, THANK YOU.  THANK YOU for taking part and THANK YOU to all your amazing Santa sponsors.  Give yourself a massive pat on the back and walk around with a big Springhill Smile on your face……you should be very proud of yourself.  Thank you also to the amazing Pearl Benbow, the event's creator, for her fantastic hard work and dedication over the last 10 years.  Pearl - you're a star, without you there'd be no Santa Dash.

Total still climbing – keep your eyes peeled for news of this total increasing.  With supporters still to send in sponsor money we’re hoping this fundraising total can be an even bigger boost to Hospice funds.  To all those yet to send their sponsor money in, come on – be part of an exciting final fundraising total announcement!

Date for your diaries……Santa Dash or Dawdle 2016 will be on Sunday 11th December.  Be part of another fantastic event, supporting our amazing community.

Have you still got sponsor money to send to Springhill? Donate at the Hospice itself, at Springhill Tea Room & Gift Shop or on-line https://­springhill.­org.­uk/­donate-to-us.  Remember to reference ‘Santa Dash’ so your fundraising can be added to the final total.
