Santa Fun Run Shatters Records

Despite the rain a record 350 supporters gathered on 3rd December at our Santa Fun Run dressed in the famous red outfit to raise funds for Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre.

A huge £13,321 was raised through the event, which could pay to keep the hospice open for over 8 days, ensuring we can continue providing their vital care and support to patients and families in Bromsgrove and Redditch.

The event saw Santa, and his Snowman helpers from Redditch Round Table, and Mayor of Redditch, Salman Akbar, welcoming participants over the finish line to be greeted with a medal and all-important mince pie.

Sue McDowall who took part in the Santa Fun Run said: “The Santa Fun Run was a brilliant morning full of laughter, dancing and of course, much needed donations for Primrose Hospice. The warmup kept spirits high and, despite the rain, everyone had a smile on their face all the way round. It was really special to share the Santa Fun Run with my Daughter and Grand-daughter, knowing that we were contributing to a wonderful cause like Primrose Hospice.”

We would like to thank all our volunteers and everyone who supported their Santa Fun Run 2023.

We have plenty more events that you could get involved with throughout 2024 – take a look here.

It costs Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre £1.95 million to provide our care and support for free to those that need them. Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre offer care and advice to patients living with a life-limiting illness. We also support families who have experienced a bereavement or who have a family member living with a life limiting illness in the North East Worcestershire area.
