Santa Dash and Reindeer Run

Wigan and Leigh Hospice is celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year and we were invited to join in their celebrations and help with their fundraising by holding a sponsored Reindeer Run/Santa Dash. Every child who took part received a Santa Hat or a pair of Reindeer antlers with a flashing red nose. Initially, Early Years and Key Stage 1 ran around the Infants playground, while Key Stage 2 ran on the Juniors playground, then after the dash the whole school gathered together to have a photograph taken. Everyone who participated thoroughly enjoyed it, and we raised a magnificent £3,699, with more money still coming in in dribs and drabs, for Wigan Hospice who provide a vital service to our town. It relies heavily on the support of local residents to keep its doors open and continue to provide high standards of love and care to those in need of their service. Many thanks for all your support!
