Cornwall Hospice Care Santa Fun Run at The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Join Cornwall Hospice Care and their title sponsor, Ann’s Cottage Surf Shops, on Friday 6th December for a brand new and exciting Santa Fun Run through The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

There will be a festive warm up at 6.30 pm, before the one mile Fun Run sets off at 6.45 pm. You can run, jog or walk around the paths of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, dressed in your free Santa suit, before joining us at the finish for a mince pie and your finisher’s medal, and if that’s not enough, why not then take a stroll around our Heligan Christmas Fair soaking up the Christmas atmosphere, and maybe buy a gift or two?

Sign up today and kick-start some Christmas spirit, whilst supporting your local adult hospices and all that they do for those who are terminally ill in Cornwall.

Your entry fee covers the cost of putting on this event, so anything you can raise as sponsorship for Cornwall Hospice Care will help fund their care of those terminally ill in Cornwall, just £20 will fund an hour of nursing care; how many hours can you fund?

Online entries close at midday on Tuesday 3rd December.

You can enter the Santa Run on the day – registration will open at 5.00 pm. You will pick up your Santa Suits on the day at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Pentewan, St Austell, PL26 6EN.

Come prepared to decorate your suits with lights, tinsel, deely-boppers.
