It’s a spectacle of light
Magical woodlands at Dalkeith Country Park shine bright for children’s charity CHAS
DALKEITH COUNTRY Park's Spectacle of Light and Santa Fun Run is an opportunity to raise vital funds for Children's Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) this month.
The park has been in a charity partnership with CHAS since May 2019 raising money for children with life limiting conditions through a series of events and donations from across the business. The partnership draws to a close on 31 December, allowing Dalkeith Country Park to create opportunities with a different charity next year, and the team at the park is determined to raise as much as possible before the end of the year.
The Park's Santa Fun Run and the Rainbow's End feature within Spectacle of Light will be the last two major fundraising drives when people can help raise money for CHAS children and families.
Stephen Begg, sales and events manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We know from our colleagues at CHAS that the last year and a half has been an incredibly difficult time for CHAS families. Even more than in normal times. To be able to raise money for CHAS children through family focussed events like Spectacle of Light and our Santa Fun Run brings an extra dimension of meaning to Christmas at Dalkeith Country Park.”
