Yesterday staff from Granta Park swapped their office clothes for Santa suits to take part in the first EACH Granta Park Santa Run.
More than 240 staff members from businesses on Granta Park in Great Abington took part in a 2.5km fun run during their lunch break to raise money for EACH’s Milton hospice.
It was the very first year Granta Park has organised an EACH Santa Run and it was a fun festive event which we hope will continue to grow in stregnth.
All companies on the park were encouraged to enter at least one team into the event, with a prize on offer for the group that raised the most money for the charity. Daisy’s Dashers from PPD won the hamper prize, kindly donated by Sainsbury’s Local in the Cambridge Leisure Park. Their current fundraising total stands at over £1,200. The team were running for Daisy and her family, who have benefited from EACH’s care at Milton.
Overall the run has managed to raise over £5,300 so far, which is enough to fund one day’s care at Milton hospice.
Thanks to everyone who took part!
We have another Santa Run in the area in Cambridge on Sunday 14 December. Have a look at our events diary
