The 2018 event had attracted over 550 entrants who, between them, raised £5,800. This year’s total takes the amount raised for good causes over the last ten years to a figure in excess of £109,000.

  • Cancer Research UK
  • Bamboozle Theatre Company [Leicester]
  • Lutterworth Share & Care Group
  • Rotary Club of Lutterworth charities
  • Rotary Club of Lutterworth Wycliffe charities
  • Age Concern – Lutterworth & District
  • Lutterworth & Villages Food Bank

In addition to the cheques presented, donations totaling £550 were also given to local community groups which supported the event.

Eddie Hemsley, speaking for the organising committee, thanked all those individuals & groups who had made the event possible through their gifts of time, money or materials. Without the support of local businesses & other organisations the event would be impossible to stage. However, despite the recent growth of local competition & the fact that this was the tenth running of the event, the Fun Run had, yet again, proved to be a great success and some very worthwhile causes had achieved significant benefit. The committee confirmed that the 2019 Santa Fun Run would take place this year on Sunday 1st December. As in previous years it will be on the Sunday following the Christmas Lights Switch-On on Friday 29th November.
