You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry, you’d better not pout, I’m telling you why: Santa Claus is coming to town!
Well that’s what St Nicholas Hospice Care is hoping as it launches its annual Santa’s Hospice Jingle, to be held on Friday 9 December and throughout the festive season.
Last year hundreds of people from all over West Suffolk donned the famous red suit and raised more than £5,000. This year, the Hospice would like people of all ages and professions to help raise even more.
It is hoped groups of colleagues will wear the costumes to work - as a team of hairdressers did last year - or that schoolfriends and their teachers will be Santas for the day at school or college. Any profession - from a builder to chef, office worker or gardener – can get involved in the fun festive event.
Ian Norris, Hospice Community Fundraiser, said: “We urge people to get involved, get in the Christmas spirit and support a great local cause. And we ho-ho-hope everyone who takes part has a fantastic festive time.
“If you see one of our Santas out and about on December 9 or over the Christmas period, please dig deep and support them.”
Entry costs £5, including the Santa suit to keep and a bucket to store donations. To get your hands on a Santa suit or for more information, contact the Fundraising Department on 01284 766133 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
