Ho! Ho! Ho! There’s only nine weeks to go until Christmas! (eek) Why not kick off the season of goodwill and sign up to team FTCT for the Do It for Charity’s Santa Run on 3 December 2017. Its lots of fun and your chance to do something special for the children of UK fashion and textile families.

Join team Karen Millen (pictured here at last year’s event) and run, walk or jog through London’s Victoria Park at your own pace. It’s the taking part that counts! The money you raise will go towards FTCT grants for the children of UK fashion and textile employees facing financial hardship.

Join thousands of Santa’s

You can choose between a 5 or 10k course and take part on your own or get together with a team of work colleagues, family or friends. You can even sign up with your dog! It’s a fun day out for everyone.

Entrants must raise a minimum of £100 each, and there is a £25 non-refundable sign-up fee for adults (children £10). You’ll receive a free Santa costume, or if you are feeling creative, you can make one of your own. A little suggestion from us … add as much ‘bling and tinsel’ as possible!

New to running and fundraising?

Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to prepare. If you are new to running, you can follow the NHS LiveWell Couch to 5k and download their App. You can also take part in a FREE parkrun – local, timed 5k runs every Saturday morning in a park near you. Check out their website for more details and how you can sign up.

We’ll be your biggest supporters! We’ll have ideas to boost your fundraising with your employers, friends and family – we’ll help you smash your fundraising target and cheer you on all the way.
