    Story

    We have organised our version of a Santa Fun Run on 19th December from 10am in a route around Speen. As members of a local ladies running group we regularly run together either with or without our dogs and during this year’s various restrictions the laughs and companionship have proved more valuable than ever. With the usual number of fundraising events curtailed by Covid we have decided to dress up in our sassy Santa outfits and do our bit to raise money for Speen Helping Hospices, a fantastic local initiative that is very close to our hearts.

    Speen Helping Hospices was founded in 2001 with the aim of raising funds for local hospices. The group started in a small way with a Hospice Charity Christmas Card Sale and other small events building over the years to include the Spring Lunch at the Horses Trust, The Car Boot Sale, Bridge Afternoon, Chili and Dancing to a live band evening and The Christmas Market - this year online of course. With limited Government funding the Hospice Charites rely heavily on groups like the SHH to raise funds necessary to care for people with life limiting conditions and support their families.

    The group support Florence Nightingale House, Helen Douglas House, Rennie Grove hospice and The South Bucks Day Hospice. To date they have raised over £79,000.

    Please support us with our fun run either via this link and/or on the day with a cheer or three as we pound the village roads! Many thanks for your support!

      Just a quick note to let you all know that we will be running in two small socially distanced groups on Saturday morning to ensure we fully comply with government guidelines. Thank you so much for all of your generous support towards Speen Helping Hospices. Now let’s hope for a dry morning 🏃‍♀️😀🙏

      We’ve got just over a week to go until the Sassy Santa run in aid of Speen Helping Hospices! Mindful of the massive responsibility we have to raise lots of money for this wonderful charity (which is all the more important in these tough times when Hospices are stretched to their absolute limit), we’ve been feverishly pounding the streets, training to ensure that we do the best we possibly can. We want to say a massive THANKS to all those who have already donated but we’d love to raise some more and give this charity a wonderful Xmas gift.
