About the Santa Fun Run - Start 11:00am Sun 9th Dec 2018
Our major charities this year will be Hannah's – Dame Hannah Rogers, Jeremiah's Journey and Shekinah
We hope that you will consider these to be worthwhile charities and support us in our endeavours to raise both money and the profile of these causes.
Your entry fee is a donation to the charities but this is partly offset by the cost of the Santa suits, road closure fees, medical cover etc.
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!
Jeremiah’s Journey is a small local charity that works with children, young people and their families where: a significant adult 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 many local children, young people & their families. The support of our local community will help us to further our available support and the Charity has benefited significantly from the work of The Saltram Rotary Club over many years.
Jeremiah’s Journey provides support through an advice line which operates Monday-Friday between 12:00-13:30 and a member of the clinical team is available to discuss things with young people, families and professionals working with families by calling (01752) 424348.
Shekinah is a Devon and Cornwall based charity and has been supporting people who are homeless and in poverty for more than 25years.
Shekinah provides opportunities for people in recovery or seeking recovery. This may include recovery from homelessness, drug and alcohol issues, offending behaviours or mental ill health. Shekinah believes that everyone deserves to be given another chance, and a passionate and dedicated team of staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly over the years ensuring that people in crisis are given a variety of opportunities to reach a secure and contented life.
Although the injustice of homelessness is at the core of Shekinah's work, there is an increasing demand from those people with complex needs, including mental health, substance abuse and criminogenic behaviours. Working with key strategic partners, Shekinah helps people access support to help move away from the streets, address their health issues, learn new skills via our training centre and receive help in finding work with the support of the local business community.
Our Mission - We see the person first, so we can work together to enable them to be the person they want to be. To be a voice for individuals with multiple and complex needs. We will achieve this by listening to what they tell us, advocating for what they need and supporting the changes that deliver that.
