A Santa Dash is coming to Penwortham during early December.


Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Galloways are teaming up with Penwortham Town Council to make the one-mile run take place.

Taking place on Sunday 2 December there will be lots of festive fun on the route from the Priory Youth and Community Centre car park through to Galloway’s Howick House.

The dash, which begins at 12noon, ends with a Christmas fair and free refreshments.

Rosemere’s central area fundraising co-ordinator Rebecca Hall said: “This is a first for Penwortham Town Council so both ourselves and Galloway’s are very grateful to have been chosen as charity partners.

“Hopefully, it will be a huge success and lots of fun with people dressing up. We’d also like to see people proudly displaying the names of anyone they
wish to dedicate their dash in memory of as the festive season is all about celebrating the special people in our lives and community whether or not they are still with us.”

Community fundraiser for Galloway’s Roya Armstrong said: “We’re delighted to be part of Penwortham’s first ever Santa Dash with our friends at Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

“Galloway’s has been part of the Penwortham community for many years and we hope that many people will take part to help us support more people living with sight loss. The event will finish at Galloway’s where we will be hosting a Christmas fair and offering refreshments to everybody who has taken part.

“We’re delighted to be part of such an exciting event in Penwortham and hope it will be a great success for both charities.”
