Hundreds of Thames Hospice supporters took to the outside on Sunday 6 December 2020 for the charity's annual Santa Dash.

Berkshires longest-running Santa Dash is one of the highlights in the Hospices fundraising calendar and raises significant funds each year to support local people who need urgent hospice care over the Christmas period and beyond.

As the annual festive fun run was unable to take place at Swinley Forest this year, supporters were invited to do it their way and take on their own local walking or running route, covering a distance of either 3k, 5k or 10k, whilst adhering to the UK Governments social distancing guidelines.

Alison Evans, Head of Community and Events Fundraising, said: "Our annual Santa Dash is always such a great event which really kicks off the Christmas season. As sad as it was that we couldn't be together as a community this year, it was so great to see over 450 people taking part and supporting us this Christmas.

"Thank you to everyone who signed up and fundraised for us; the support weve been shown from our community and local organisations has been truly amazing in this challenging year."

To date, the Santa Dash has raised an incredible £45,000 for the Hospice.

If you took part in the Thames Hospice Santa Dash on Sunday, the charity is encouraging everyone to share their Santa photos with them on their Facebook page and tag them using @thameshospcare, or tweet the Hospice with your photos @thameshospcare.
