Welcome to Santa’s on a Bike! Those of you that have been here before have probably noticed a couple of change s to the site, do not fear we are still doing our regular December event as before, raising as much money as we can for Children’s Hospice South West, to help for the care of terminally ill children and give support to the families.
For those of you that aren’t aware of what we do, on the first Saturday of December we organise motorbike rides to the three children’s hospices (Bristol, St Austell and Barnstaple) where the riders come dressed as Santas, Elves etc with their bikes festively decorated. This is a donation only event that has raised much money over the years as well as putting smiles on the faces of the children and public as we make our way to the hospices.
So what’s different?
This year, on Sunday June 21st , we will be holding our first ever Summer Santa Run. The idea is exactly the same as the original “Santa’s on a Bike” with bikes and riders decorated in a Christmas style raising as much money as possible for the Children’s Hospice South West, but hopefully with better weather and more bikes (more money).
As this is our first year we have decided to concentrate on one ride and decided on Little Bridge Hospice just outside Barnstaple as this was the first Hospice to open 20years ago this year. The plan will be to have three main start locations; Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth, that will set off at similar times, picking up along the way then all making their way to a central meeting point at Barnstaple. From there we will all leave together to ride to the hospice, where we will be warmly welcomed by the children, family and staff. There we will be taking donations and holding a raffle for some very kindly donated prizes.
Please keep visiting this site or www.facebook.com/groups/summersantarun for all the latest details on routes etc. these will be updated as and when confirmed.
