People of all different ages attended the Santa Dash

The annual three-mile St Catherine’s Santa Dash returned on Sunday, December 5, to raise funds for residents living with life-shortening illnesses.

Families and friends participated in the Santa Dash

This year, supporters of St Catherine’s can choose to take on the challenge in their own time during December too.

The event was fun for all who attended

Emma Jacovelli, head of community engagement at the Lostock Hall charity, said: “We’re really excited that our Santa Dash is returning to the docks this year, and we’re looking forward to welcoming our supporters to come together and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere of this seasonal fundraising event.

“Our virtual version was really popular last year – with people taking part from as far away as America – and we loved seeing everyone’s photos from around Lancashire and beyond, so there’s also the option to take to the streets any time in December to complete the sponsored run, walk, cycle or jog anytime and anywhere this December.

“Everyone will receive a Santa suit and medal, and funds raised will help us care for local people living with life-shortening illnesses, at the hospice and in patients own homes this Christmas.”
