Festive fun at Yuletide Jog

Elves, Christmas trees and reindeer were out in force bringing the festive spirit to the St Richard’s Hospice Yuletide Jog at The Valley, Evesham.

More than 170 runners donned their best fancy dress to take part in the 5km walk, jog or running event last Sunday (3rd December) raising over £3,000 for hospice care in Worcestershire.

Despite the drizzle, the joggers – including 45 children – showed off their creative skills and brought a smile to the faces of other participants and visitors alike.

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their loved ones. Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,000 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.

The hospice strives to provide the best medical, practical, emotional and social support they can to help people live life to the fullest, as independently as they can, for as long as they can. They care for people with a range of illnesses including heart failure, Parkinson’s, and motor neurone disease as well as cancer.

St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations to help it continue its work.
