It’s Team Santa versus Team Elves! Join the festive fundraiser to support East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
Santa and his elves are planning a practice run around East Anglia ahead of their big night on Christmas Eve – and they want you to take part.
As a virtual event which individuals carry out on their own, the race can go ahead despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just dig out any Santa hat or a pair of elf ears you happen to own, and join either Team Santa or Team Elves.
Then carry out your own fundraising run, walk, hop, skip or dance between Thursday, December 10 and Sunday, December 13.

EACH events fundraiser Emma Benstead, Team Santa captain, said “It’s been a challenging year for all charities and EACH is no exception. We might normally be organising a community Santa run for Christmas, but clearly that can’t happen this year.
“It’s been the same story for so many other mass participation events that are crucial to funding our vital care and support.”
