Bolt­ing San­tas clock

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

CHRIST­MAS came early in South­port on Sun­day as hun­dreds of run­ners dressed as Santa Claus de­scended on the town.

Vol­un­teers braved the cold weather to take part in the an­nual Santa Sprint and raise money for Queen­scourt Hospice.

The event is now in its ninth year and fea­tured both a 3k and a 5k course.

The Santa Sprint is spon­sored by the Sil­cock Leisure Group and saw adults and chil­dren set off from the carousel on South­port pier be­fore run­ning and walk­ing around the seafront.

Rachael West, vol­un­teer and cit­i­zen­ship worker with Vol­un­teer Cen­tre Sefton – which is part of Sefton CVS – said: “Queen­scourt Hospice pro­vides an in­valu­able ser­vice to South­port and West Lan­cashire res­i­dents with se­ri­ous ill­nesses by en­abling them to achieve the best pos­si­ble qual­ity of life.

“The Santa Sprint is a great way to raise money for this re­ally worth­while lo­cal cause.”
