About the Santa Run - Start 11:00am Sun 4th Dec 2016
This will be the sixth year for this event and we look forward to welcoming you all on Sunday 4th December 2016.
Our major charities this year will be Hannah's – Dame Hannah Rogers and Jeremiah's Journey.
We hope that you will consider these to be a worthwhile charities and support us in our endeavours to raise both money and the profile of this cause.
Your entry fee is a donation to the charities but this is offset by the cost of the santa suits, road closure fees, medical cover etc. However, it is important to note that 100% of the sponsorship monies raised is forwarded to the charities.
The Santa Run is designed to be a fun event whilst at the same time raising money for those less fortunate than ourselves. So, please help us by firstly participating and secondly getting all your friends and family to sponsor you. Better still would be for them to participate as well and raise their own sponsorship money.
Have a great day and thank you for your support.

The Dame Hannah Rogers Charity
The Dame Hannah Rogers Charity, known fondly as 'Hannahs', are a local charity. At Hannahs, we have been enriching the lives of children and adults with disabilities for almost 250 years.
Our mission is to empower, advocate and enrich the lives of children and adults with a range of disabilities.
At Hannahs, we provide learning, care, support and real choice to the children and adults with disabilities. A dedicated and highly trained team of staff help our students and visitors to grow and learn with confidence and freedom at our school and respite centre at Ivybridge and at our community project at Seale Hayne.
The support of the community to help fund our work is vital; without our fantastic fundraisers supporting us every step of the way, we wouldn’t be where we are today! To find out more about Hannahs and the work that we do, visit www.discoverhannahs.org
Jeremiah’s Journey is a small local charity that works with children, young people and their families where: a parent or carer has a terminal illness; or someone special to them has died. It is important for families to be supported through these challenging times and Jeremiah’s Journey works with them to offer them that support through individual and group work programmes.
We use lots of creative activities to help them to express their feelings of grief; share their memories and explore ways of coping. In the last year we have supported nearly 350 local children & families.
As a charity we have just been awarded Big Lottery Funding which will help us to support clinical work we do for the next three years. The support of our local community will help us to further our available support. An example of this is our new 'Grandparents Day' group programme.
