Hop, skip and jump your way to help St Giles over the 12 days of Christmas or even the whole month of December!

We’d love your little ones to join #TeamStGiles this Christmas to clock up some Merry Mini Miles!

Whether they hop, skip and jump, bike, skate or sledge… your kind-hearted kids can complete their challenge however they like. Plus, there’s no set distance either, meaning they could tackle a mile a day (or maybe more) either over 12 days or even a month!

Whatever they decide to do, their Merry Mini Miles will make a huge difference to local people, and their families, living with a terminal illness.

By raising a little bit of sponsorship, they can earn some super St Giles goodies too. Sign up today and receive a FREE Santa hat!

It takes a community to make a hospice

Evie Deeley, 9, is calling on kids to take part in Mini Miles 4 St Giles after having a great time walking, running, skipping and doing cartwheels over 65 miles to raise £1,310 for St Giles!

Evie’s mum, Liz Whalley, said: “I would definitely recommend people to encourage their kids to take part in Mini Miles 4 St Giles.

Evie loved doing it as it gave her a sense of achievement. She loved to see what she had raised money for and how it could help other people.

I think St Giles is a wonderful organisation. They gave my Grandma Margaret respite care, which made such a difference to her – it was just phenomenal care.”
