Santas Dash or Dawdle for Springhill

The Santa Dash and Dawdle is back and promising to be another Christmas Cracker!

With summer well and truly over, the leaves turning the gardens of Springhill Hospice a wonderful, warm autumnal mix of colours and the nights closing in, the fundraising team at Springhill are delighted to launch the fun, frivolous and family friendly fundraising event that MAKES Christmas, Christmas! 

On Sunday 10th December at 11.00 am, Santas aplenty will be back and raring to go at this year’s Santa Dash or Dawdle and Springhill want you to join them.

Last year 600 Santas, along with their four legged friends, buggies and even various forms of wheeled transport, dashed, dawdled, ambled, strolled and most definitely giggled their way around Hollingworth Lake on this 4km festive event and we're hoping to repeat the festive fun again this year!  As well as having a smashing time, those Santas presented Springhill with an amazing sack of fundraising lolly, gifting them with sponsorship of £20,000!

“Last year families, friends and work colleagues from all over their Borough donned their red and white suits, pulling out all the stops to create a fantastic morning.  We had families, individuals, teams and even whole companies getting involved.  Entries have already started to flood in and it’s set to be another wonderful year. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a scattering of snow to accompany the Santas and the carols being played by Wardle Community Band to give the event that traditional Christmas feel” said Lillie Winterbottom, Springhill Hospice’s event organiser.
