Truscotts helps to deliver Santa in a Van

Santa on the Run Truscotts Van

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) would like to thank Truscotts of Barnstaple for donating the use of a van for its Santas on the Run events in the area this December.

Santas on the Run is an event for the whole family and the charity has runs in Bideford, Holsworthy and Tiverton.  Jayne Jarrett, events fundraiser for CHSW said:

‘This is such a kind donation, we have so much that we need to carry to these events – including several hundred Santa suits! – and the van will be such a help to our team.’

CHSW were put in touch with the company through long-term supporter of the charity, Rick Dean and Truscotts has also arranged for the van to carry livery for the runs. CHSW has been given use of it throughout November to help with promotion of the runs which are taking place over the first weekend in December.

Fundraising from the runs will help to support the work of the charity’s Little Bridge House hospice near Barnstaple which supports children from around Devon who have life limiting conditions. It’s an event for the whole family and is a great way for families and friends to kick start the festive season. 

Prices are £15 for adults, £7.50 for children aged 3-15, with discounts for families and teams and registration closes midday on Wednesday 29 November.
