One of the highlights of the Grantham festive calendar is on the horizon but volunteers are needed to take part.
There are fewer more uplifting sights than a 100 or so fund-raisers dressed as Santa Claus sprinting (or more often walking briskly) away from the starting line - this year in Wyndham Park
The 2012 Grantham Santa Fun Run and Walk will be held entirely in Wyndham Park on Saturday, December 1, with people completing two laps and a total of 2.5km.
This year’s race will raise cash for the British Heart Foundation, the Rotary (Charity) Foundation and St Wulfram’s church.
Last year’s event was a big success and organisers hope the Grantham Santa Fun Run will gain increased support year-on-year.
Organiser Courtney Finn said: “This year it is going to be a joint effort between Rotary, the British Heart Foundation and St Wulfram’s.
“Last year was our first and we raised about £1,600 which helped the BHF’s good work and was a contribution towards the £360 per day that it costs to run St Wulfram’s.”
Christmas music from Premier Cru will help set the mood and everyone who completes the route will get a special medal from the British Heart Foundation. Bring your sponsorship form with you on the day. You can return your sponsorship money by making out a cheque payable to Grantham Santa Fun Run and sending it to: 1 Bellwood Gardens, Grantham, NG31 9LT.
