Hundreds of Santa Clauses are expected to take to the streets of Pontefract next month for the Prince of Wales Hospice’s annual Santa Dash.

Last year’s event saw more than 200 people take part in the two-and-a-half mile run around the town centre.

This year’s event will take place on Sunday, December 8 from 10am and organisers are now inviting people to sign up.

Emma Priestley, event fundraiser at the hospice, said: “This event really helps us to get noticed in the community and there is no better way to spread some Christmas cheer with friends, family and colleagues.”

Entry to the event costs £8.50 or £10.50 if you require a Santa suit.
