Starting off

Here are all the photos from Penwortham Town Council and Galloway’s Society for the Blind's Santa Dash 2019

Not content with his usual sleigh ride, santa was hula-hooping through Penwortham to raise funds for a charity which supports blind people.

Penwortham Town Council and Galloway’s Society for the Blind joined forces to hold the Penwortham Santa Dash which saw scores of people dressed in red suits walking or jogging a 3k route.

The charity’s CEO, Stuart Clayton, led the way from the head office in Howick House, trekking along Liverpool Road and back to base, where the santas then enjoyed food and entertainment.

There were food and gift stalls, as well as a performance from local singer Jessica Helen.

All proceeds raised from the event will help Galloway’s provide life changing support to local people living with sight loss.

Dawn Gerrard, community fund-raiser for Galloway’s, said: “The dash was amazing. We had more than 100 santas and it was nice to see the community get behind us. We hope to do another one next year, which will be even bigger.”
