24th October 2014
... Comments

Every over-16 entrant gets a free Santa suit when they register, which can be done via www.newlifecharity.co.uk/santadash  or by calling freephone 0800 988 4640.

 

Newlife Fundraising Manager Nora Smith said: “Last year we had an amazing turnout for the Newlife Santa Dash and this December we would like to make it bigger and better than ever. So are we urging people to put the date in their diaries and sign up now.

 

“It’s a great opportunity for individuals as well as families, groups of work colleagues, students and even health and leisure club members to get together for a bit of festive fun. Setting off at 11am, it takes no more than an hour of your time and it’s a real party atmosphere!”

 

The past year has seen Newlife Foundation’s range of practical support services for disabled and terminally ill children develop and expand as demand has increased. In 2013/14, Newlife awarded 1,303 Equipment Grants across theUK, totalling £2,088,105. This was a 33 per cent increase on the previous financial year.

 

The proceeds from last year’s Newlife Santa Dash helped four Staffordshire children by providing specialist walkers for three youngsters  and a standing frame for a fourth.

 

For further details about the Newlife Santa Dash on Saturday 13 December, call the charity’s fundraising team on 0800 988 4640.
