Emma Jacovelli, head of community engagement at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re already
seeing a really great response to our Santa Dash with almost 300 people registered. It’s going from strength to strength, and there’s still time for people to sign up.
“It’s two laps around the docks and people can run, jog, or walk, so it’s suitable for everyone – prams, wheelchairs, scooters and four-legged friends included!
“It’s a really great way to get the whole community together to do something festive and feel-good in the run-up to Christmas, with money raised helping to fund our compassionate care at this special time of year.
“More than 300 Santas dashed for St Catherine’s last year and we’re hoping to smash that target for 2023!”
