Young people and staff from The Birches Children’s Home pulled on their Santa suits to take part in a Santa’s Dash to support Queenscourt Hospice. The local charity provides support for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life.

The event brought lots of Christmas cheer as the community came together to complete the 3-kilometre fun run and as you can see from the photos there were plenty of Santa’s around.

After completing the run, the young people were delighted to learn that they raised £200 for such a worthy cause.

Well done everyone.
