As the countdown to Christmas begins, a children’s hospice is encouraging residents to take part in its seasonal fundraiser.
Haven House, High Road, Woodford Green is holding its annual Santathon on December 2 at Dagenham and Redbridge FC, Victoria Road, Dagenham.
The 5km family fun run encourages participants to dress up while raising money for charity.
Mike Palfreman, chief executive, said: “This is a really fun event and is sure to get people into the festive spirit.
“However, it’s also about raising vital funds to help support local life-limited children at this special time of year.”
A registration fee of £10 for adults and £5 for children, includes a Santa suit and medal.
