Cancer counselling charity We Hear You (WHY) are once again hosting a Santa Dash at Frome Cricket Club on Sunday 11th December, in collaboration with Frome Running Club. For those who prefer a nice sit down and a delicious breakfast to a fun run, the ACTUAL Santa will be hosting four ‘Breakfast with Santa’ events at Home in Frome on 4th, 10th. 23rd and 24th December. Parents and children can enjoy a meat or veggie brunch with squash, tea or filter coffee on 4th in the company of December’s busiest man, and children have a chance to meet Santa and take home a gift.
Fundraising Officer Helen White said “We love Christmas at WHY and we love a Home in Frome brunch! Thanks as ever to Keren and the team at Home for all their support in running this event. Bring your small people for a close encounter with Father Christmas, have a lovely morning out with a totally delicious breakfast and support WHY’s vital services for children and adults impacted by cancer, whether they’re the patient or it’s someone they love.”
“After (or before) you enjoy your brunch, there’s another chance to get festive for WHY at our popular Santa Dash event, back on 11th December and sillier than ever! Pick up one of our Santa suits or style your own Christmassy running gear as you take on the 4k fun run distance. There’s always a healthy mixture of speedy runners and people taking a more leisurely pace…all are truly welcome and we’ll be there to cheer you on with mince pies and a bacon roll at the end. Thank you to Frome Cricket Club and Frome Running Club fir making the fab event happen again in 2022”
“Our free counselling service supports 150 people every single week, at a cost of £6,600, and it’s events like these that help us keep doing it. Thank you in advance for your generosity and (also in advance) happy Christmas!”
