The streets of March will turn into a sea of red later this month, as hundreds of Santas will once again run through March town centre to raise money for a good cause.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices will host its second annual Santa Run on Sunday, November 24, with the event starting and finished at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel.

The Santa Run will be the centrepiece of the hotel’s Christmas fayre weekend, and the 2.5km route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs and dogs are invited.

Beccy Turner, EACH fund-raiser, said: “We were so pleased with the success of last year’s inaugural event that we decided to run it again.

“It’s great fun and anyone can take part – so why not sign up, get sponsored, take part and raise funds for EACH at the same time.

Adult entry is £10 and includes a Santa suit or £8 without a suit, while entry for those aged 13 and under is £5 and includes a Santa hat. Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship.
