Well done Rudolph Runners!
A huge thanks to the ho ho ho hundreds of supporters who took part in our 12th annual Rudolph Run on Sunday 6th December.
It might have been slightly different to usual, but that didn’t stop you from taking to the streets to raise thousands of pounds for St Giles Hospice – and even in the rain, too!
We’ve added a tree-mendous photo album to our Facebook page here – see if you can spot yourself! Plus, we’ll also be drawing our photo competition on Tuesday 15th December, with one person winning a food hamper! T&Cs here.
We’re here for you… because you’re here for us
Alison’s husband, Mike Dolphin, was cared for by St Giles when he was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2013.
She said: “It was a very difficult time and we thought it was all doom and gloom, but the staff at St Giles were so lovely and supportive and really helped us through. Luckily Mike has been able to keep his cancer at bay, but his illness is life-limiting.”
She added: “You never know when you, your family or friends might need hospice care, but it’s such a comfort to know that St Giles is there when you need it. The support you get is outstanding and we’re so lucky to have this wonderful facility on our doorstep.”
After taking part in her first Rudolph Run in 2019, Alison was delighted to hear that this year’s event would be taking place in some capacity.
“It’s absolutely amazing to hear that the Rudolph Run is going ahead,” she said. “It’s a wonderful event with such a lovely atmosphere and I’ll definitely be signing up.
“Like so many runners I’ve really missed being able to take part in events this year, so after all the cancellations and disappointments it’s great to be able to end the year with a bit of light relief.”
