Santa Dash

Santa dash

Join hundreds of Santas and Santarinas as they take to the streets of Pinner to raise much needed funds for your local hospice on Sunday 10 Decemeber. The Santa Dash is a great way to end the year. Take part as a team, with friends, family or work colleagues, or even bring the dog!

The event

This year we have the pleasure again to start and finish our route at Nower Hill High School on George V Avenue, Pinner, HA5 5RP. Registration opens at 10.30am and the dash will start at 11am. Entry includes your very own Santa suit, mince pie and hot drink completion.

The Santa’s will be entertained by the White City TA - 20 Company Corps of Drummers and Scoil Rince Ryan Lavelle Irish dancers before the dash and will receive a medal and well deserved mince pie on completion. Participants of all ages are welcome and you can even bring along the family dog!

Raising Funds

The Santa Dash is a sponsored event, to raise money for patient care at St Luke's Hospice. We ask all our participants to aim to raise as much money as possible to we can continue helping people in the local community with terminal illnesses.

By raising just £50 you could enable a patient to access high quality hospice care in the familiar surroundings of his or her own home by paying a home visits from one of our doctors, nurses or social workers.

Angela Egan has been taking part in the Santa Dash for many years now and has raised thousands of pounds for St Luke’s – last year raising her team 'Away with the Fairies' collected £3500.

‘My husband was really young when he was diagnosed with cancer and died aged 33 years old. I started taking part in events so I could say thank you to the Hospice for all their hard work. Then a few years ago a friend of mine died and it was round the time of the Santa Dash, so I decided to get involved. People should take part in the Santa Dash because most people nowadays will know somebody who has been affected by cancer and know how hard the staff at hospices work in order to make sure those patients are cared for in their final few days. Not only that, but they also look after the families extremely well. When I came to visit my husband they regularly brought us tea and biscuits, the staff were so good to us; they looked after us as well as the patients.’
