Santas on the Run will return to Eden

Santas sprinting around Eden at last year's event

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is delighted that it’s festive fundraiser Santas on the Run will be returning to the Eden Project on Sunday 8th December with Ocean Group as headline sponsor.

The annual fundraising event for CHSW, which runs Little Harbour children’s hospice at Porthpean, used to take place in St Austell town centre, however moved to the Eden Project in 2015 which has seen the event grow in popularity and funds raised. Last year the event saw 500 Santas sprinting around Eden and together they raised £17,000 for Little Harbour.

Kiley Pearce, Events Fundraiser for CHSW said

We are really excited to be bringing Santas on the Run back to Eden this Christmas. The venue has such a festive feeling and you really can make a day of it. Join us at Santas on the Run with friends, family or colleagues, support your local children’s hospice and get into the festive spirit.

Early bird ticket discounts are available for everyone who signs up before 14th October. Early bird prices are £12 for an adult, £6 for a child and under 2’s can take part for free. Ticket price also includes free entry into Eden for the day.

Santas on the Run is a day full of festive fun and aims to raise as much money as possible for Little Harbour to continue providing children and families with short breaks as well as end of life care and bereavement support.  Adults taking part are encouraged to raise £30 in sponsorship and children £20.
