This year we hope our Santa Fun Run will raise £25,000 to cover the cost of running our inpatient unit over the Christmas period. 

Our Santa Fun Run is on Sunday, 1st December with gates opening at 8.45 am in the morning at Wykham Park Academy in Banbury.  From 8am – 12pm we need marshals, car park stewards and general helpers. We are also looking for volunteers to help set up the route on Saturday 30th November 10am -12.30pm.  Any help you are able to provide will be very gratefully accepted.
