Bolton Hospice is holding a Santa dash unlike any event before in a bid to raise much-needed funds.

The festive 2K fun run is open to all friends and family and will take place at Leverhulme Park.

Those taking part can wear their own Christmas outfit or ask the hospice for adult and child Santa and Elf suits, available to buy from our fundraising office.

These are however only a limited supply.

Adult Santa suits are £10 and child Santa (9-14) and Elf (5-8) are £5 each. 

People will be able to take a trip through the magical Candy Cane Lane before reaching the festive themed finish line and enjoying a special visit from Santa.

Prizes will also be available for the best dressed, as well as post-race treats.

The fun run will take place on Saturday, December 3, with registration taking place at 10.15am, and the race starting at 11am.

Tickets cost £3 for children, and £5 for adults.

The Bolton News recently launched its 'Save Bolton Hospice' campaign to help reduce the deficit, aiming to raise an initial £100,000.

The money is vital or the hospice faces making cuts.
