Whether you run, saunter or stroll, you can choose a 2km or 5km route through the picturesque village of Uppermill and take in the sensational scenery at this family friendly event. whilst making it a Christmas to remember for our families here at the Hospice by raising vital funds through sponsorship!

And there’s more…  on Saturday 4th of December, not only will the streets be awash with hundreds of Santas but there will be Christmas market stalls, (including Dr Kershaw’s own Chocolate Tombola stall!), festive food and drink, carol singers and entertainment, all followed by the traditional Christmas Lights switch-on, fireworks display and to make the moment even more magical, a visit from Santa himself…on his very own sleigh!
