Wear a santa outfit for work
8:00am Sunday 28th October 2012 in News
WEAR a santa outfit for work - and raise cash for your local hospice.
That’s the message from St Luke’s which is launching its annual festive fundraiser on November 26.
The campaign runs for a fortnight and culminatres with the popular Santa Dash at Oulton Park Racing Circuit on December 9.
To get involved in ‘Wear a Santa Suit Fortnight’ all you need to do is pay a small registration fee of £10, which entitles you to pick up your Santa suit from St Luke’s.
You can encourage your colleagues, friends and family to sponsor you to wear your Santa suit with pride for a full two weeks.
Regarding the race, the hospice’s head of event management Jane Thompson said: “You can run, walk, bike or even scoot around the famous race circuit.
You can complete the 2.5k circuit at your own pace returning to a well deserved certificate and a welcome bacon sandwich.
“Entry to the event is £15 for adults, which includes a Santa Suit, and free for children (but they must register in advance to be allowed on the track). We ask our Santas to try and raise us some sponsorship to support the hospice. There is no minimum amount we just ask you to do your best.
“You could even raise your sponsorship by being one of our bag-packing Santas in a local supermarket in the lead up to Christmas.”
