Ho ho ho! Get set for Santa fun run at Colchester Business Park

Nov 20, 2017

Colchester Business Park is to be transformed into a sea of red jackets and white beards when ​EACH hosts a Santa run.

The 2km fun run – that can simply be a jog or a walk if participants prefer – takes place on Friday, 8 December and gets under way at 1pm in Flood Lane.

Justine Collins says: “We’re delighted to be hosting this fundraiser for workers at the business park and really encourage anyone from in and around the area wanting to get in the Christmas spirit to come along and join the fun!

“All money raised at the Santa run will help us continue caring for the 49 children and young people with life-threatening conditions in Essex we currently support, as well as their families.”

Tickets are £12, a price that includes a Santa suit and medal, or groups of four or more can enter for £10 per person.

For more information on the Santa run and to sign up go to www.each.org.uk. For more on fundraising and volunteering for EACH in East Essex, contact Justine on 01473 276199 or at justine.collins@each.org.uk

  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad

  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
