Elf Run

More than six thousand local children have been getting ‘fit and elfie’ while raising money for St John’s Hospice this Christmas.

A new community event, Elf Run, has attracted more than 50 schools across North Lancashire and South Cumbria to take part in their own sponsored running or walking event in a bid to raise £20,000  for the Hospice.

“This is our very first Elf Run and we’ve found that it’s just the right sort of event for everyone from tiny tots to fully fledged runners,” says Community Fundraiser, Rachael Makinson “It’s a great way to raise money while getting into the festive spirit.”

“We are so grateful to the following schools for showing such a keen interest in the vital work of St John’s, which touches the lives of so many local families from Garstang to Grasmere, we reached out to them and their response has been marvellous.
