About the Santa Fun Run - Start 11:00am Sun 8th Dec 2019
Our major charities this year will be Hannahs – Dame Hannah Rogers and Shekinah
We do hope you will agree that these are very worthwhile charities and that you will help us to raise money and enhance the profiles of Hannahs and Shekinah.
Your entry fee is a donation to these charities and other charities supported by Rotary, but this is partly offset by costs including the Santa Suits, road closure fees and medical cover.
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.
Once you have registered, arrangements for collecting your Fun Run Pack, including your Official Number, Instructions & Santa Suit are as follows: -
Collect from Barclays Bank, 140-146 Armada Way, Plymouth PL1 1LA (Corner of Cornwall St & Armada Way) on the following days: -
- Friday 29th November 10 am to 4 pm
- Saturday 30th November 10 am to 4 pm
- Thursday 5th December 10 am to 6 pm
- Friday 6th December 10 am to 4 pm
We are very grateful to Barclays Bank for allowing us to use their premises. Please note the extended hours on Thursday 5th December for the convenience of those who would find the earlier times difficult
We would emphasise that collecting your pack & Santa Suit at the above times will greatly aid both runners & organisers. The Santa Suits are in three sizes and having them well before the event will enable them to be altered if necessary.
It is appreciated that runners living outside the Plymouth Area may not be able to collect their pack and Santa Suit on the above dates. Special arrangements will be made for them to be collected at the Race Start (Top of Cornwall Street / Drake Circus Shopping Mall) between 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. on the morning of the event.
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.
Working at Ivybridge, about 11 miles from Plymouth – – Hannahs provides learning, care, support and fun for children and adults with a range of disabilities, including: a School, Respite Centre, Children’s Home, Hannahwood – an innovative transition project for older students - therapies and supported activities. Our holistic approach offers professional support from our therapists, educationalists, expert medical staff and a care team.
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.
