Hundreds of people filled the grounds of St Catherine’s Hospice with red and white during the annual Santa Dash.


The hospice played host to the Christmas Festival with an ice rink, gift stalls, craft fair and food and drink too.

More than 250 Father Christmases took to the grounds of the Lostock Hall hospice for the festive run, followed by the Rudolph Rumble for younger runners.

Festival organiser Rachel Watkinson said: “It was wonderful to welcome so many visitors and see everyone enjoying all that we had to offer over the course of the weekend.

“The support from our community has been fantastic – people have been incredibly generous and helped us raise vital funds at this important time of year.

“The sea of Santas which take over the hospice on the Sunday really adds to the festive atmosphere, and we’d like to say a big thank you to all of them and our little reindeers for their efforts raising vital funds.”
