Get into the festive spirit and join us for our sixth Santa Fun Run on Sunday 11th December
at Virginia Water in Berkshire.
The 7km picturesque run, which starts at 10.30am, is open to runners of all ages and everyone who takes part, whether they choose to dash, prance or dance around the lake, will receive a complimentary Santa Suit and a medal.
Events and Community Officer, Hannah Lambart commented “this is a great way for our supporters to celebrate the festive season, while raising much needed funds and awareness for the Trust. Participants can choose to run individually or with family, friends or colleagues, so why not turn those Scrooges into Santas and run as a team. The more, the merrier!”
Entrance to the event is £15.00 for adults; £10.00 for children and free for under 5s, or a family ticket (two adults and two children) can be purchased for £40.

From one little boy's special wish, great things have come.
Sebastian’s Action Trust has created the UK's only purpose-built facility that offers respite holidays to very sick children and their families, enabling precious time to be spent together.
Our house, called The Bluebells, has been built in the pretty Hampshire village of North Waltham. It opened in July 2011. Nothing like this previously existed in the UK, making The Bluebells the first of its kind and Sebastian's vision all the more exceptional.
Our Family Outreach Hub, in Slough Berkshire, provides a welcome drop-in centre for families of seriously-ill children, enabling them to access advice, guidance, advocacy, counselling and therapeutic support in order to address some of the critical issues they face on a daily basis.
We also give emotional, social and practical support in many different forms, through an outreach service to families of children battling with life-limiting illnesses and provide meaningful assistance at critical times to those exhausted by the stresses of hospital life and their child’s gruelling treatment.
The Trust does not have a restrictive geographical catchment area and already supports families in the South East, principally from Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire; however, we are happy to welcome families from outside these areas for respite breaks at The Bluebells.
