Christmas 2021, will see us support St Luke’s annual festive fundraiser for the third year. This year there’s a new-look for the children taking part, the Elf Run will replace the annual Rudolph Run, which has raised nearly £100,000 for the Winsford hospice over the past three years and its fundraising team hope the new format will prove a big success for 2021.
Postcard invitations have been sent to schools and nurseries and fundraising packs including Elf hats, selfie frames, stickers and Santa suits for teachers are already winging their way to the 32 quick off the mark to sign up.
St. Luke’s Community Partnerships Manager, Angela Slack, said: “We are so grateful to Mornflake for its support once again this year and of course to every school and pupil taking part.
“With their backing the festive sponsored run has raised just under £100,000 for St Luke’s over the past three years making a big difference to the patients and families we support.
“As a small local charity, St Luke’s only receives 15% of its funding from the government which means events of this kind are vital in enabling our nurses to continue to provide care.”
Last year more than 3000 children took part in the hospice campaign and all started their day with a Mornflake breakfast before stepping out in their festive gear to run round playgrounds and school fields.
