Shopping centre staff will be among runners turning out for the annual Santa Dash.

The team from Hemel Hempstead’s Riverside Shopping Centre will be donning Santa suits and completing the 2.5mile dash in aid of the Hospice of St Francis.

It helps raise vital funds for the Northchurch cause, which cares for patients facing life-limiting illnesses.

Riverside centre manager David Robinson said: “Riverside has been proud to host the Hospice of St Francis Santa Dash for the last five years and this year we will be showing our support by entering a Riverside team to raise money for this worthy cause.

“The event is a fun family day and we hope that you can come along to Riverside and support everyone taking part.”

It costs just £15 to register for adults, £5 for children or £35 for the whole family. The cost includes a Santa suit or reindeer antlers, a medal and a tasty treat at the finish.
