A spokesman for Pennine Events said: “The Onesie Run is expected to be a fabulous, festive and fun day for the whole family.“Cash for Kids’s mission is to respond to the needs of children in Lancashire, and they aspire to enable all children to live life to the full and achieve their individual potential. “The campaign includes delivering initiatives for sick and underprivileged children raising money for local children and young people who are suffering from abuse or neglect and those who are disabled and have special needs or who simply need extra care or guidance. “All the money raised on behalf of Rock FM’s Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in, providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.“With local businesses already getting involved, including Baffito’s Restaurant and Energi Trampoline Park, the event is a great opportunity to bring the community together at Christmas.”To get involved or offer prizes and services for the goodie bags,email [email protected] To register visit
