  Are you going to be a part of Team Santa?
  The streets of Cornwall look set to be awash with Santas again this year as Cornwall Hospice Care launches its annual Santa Fun Runs. The charity is calling out to those Cornish folk up for some festive fun to get involved – men and women, boys and girls, young and old – everyone is welcome to join the Christmas fundraiser. Entrants can choose to run, jog or walk around the route with a choice of two distances at all locations.
“Last year we held Santa Runs in Padstow and Falmouth and this year we are delighted to be adding another run at Land’s End. After we had so much fun last year everyone is really excited about them coming around again. We had over 300 runners last year and this year we want to smash that number and get over 600!” said Karen Holman of Cornwall Hospice Care.
There will be festive music at the start, before the Santas take to the street for a lively warm up to get them in the mood and there will be mince pies and a warm drink to greet the runners when they finish.
Every entrant will receive a free Santa suit, so there really will be a sea of Santas by the seaside - a sure way to get into the Christmas spirit and to help raise some vital funds for the charity which provides adult hospice care across Cornwall.
Radio Cornwall is supporting the charity runs not only by entering a team of runners but also with some of their well loved presenters setting the jolly Santas on their way.
Anyone interested in joining one of the Cornwall Hospice Care Santa Fun Runs as a runner or as a volunteer is asked to get in touch with Karen on 01726 66868 or email kholman@cornwallhospice.co.uk

Cornwall Enquiry and Information Service is part of Cornwall Libraries, and is accessible to everyone. You don’t need to be a library member to use it. Whatever the nature of your enquiry, ring free of charge, e-mail, write to us or use “live chat” and we will provide an answer. You might want:

  • a contact for a local club or evening class
  • an obscure piece of historical information which you can’t find online
  • a section from an Act of Parliament, or access to legal cases
  • a residential or business phone number from anywhere in the country
  • help with finding out how to get grant funding for an individual or group
  • to find help with tackling a consumer problem
  • to know how to borrow a book not in Cornwall stock

The Enquiry and Information Service is here to help you, and the service is free. We only charge for printing and postage, if required. We have a team of information professionals dedicated to finding an answer to your enquiry. Where we don’t have the information ourselves, we will always try to direct you to someone who does.
