Santas of all shapes and sizes were at Hemel Hempstead’s Snow Centre to announce the opening of registrations for the annual Hospice of St Francis Santa Dash.

Taking place on Sunday, December 15 at 10am, the festive fundraiser will see the streets of Hemel Hempstead teeming with Santas, all raising money to help look after patients living with life-limiting illnesses.

The Santa Dash is a sight to behold as families, pets, grandparents and work colleagues all don their festive red suits and run, walk or scoot round the 2.5 mile route starting at Hemel Hempstead Riverside.

This year’s event is sponsored by The Red Lion pub at Water End who are encouraging as many of their staff and customers to get involved.

Registration costs £15 for adults, £5 for children or £35 for the whole family and includes Santa suits or reindeer antlers. Entrants are also asked to raise as much as they can to support the charity.

To sign up visit www.stfrancis.org.uk/santadash or call 01442 869555.

There are also prizes up for grabs for the highest fundraising family, team and individual on the day.
