Santa Fun Run 2018!, 2nd December 2018


We had a brilliant day on Sunday Dec 3rd 2017 at our 10th Anniversary Santa Fun Run in Kidderminster’s Brinton Park and we hope you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves too!  A huge thank you to the fantastic Santa’s who ran in support of KEMP Hospice in 2017 making it our our biggest run ever! It was incredible to see everyone taking part and you are all #KEMPheroes. Now the hard work begins…



Now is the time to start collecting those final owing offers of sponsorship! Make sure you take your sponsorship form around the office or email out your Just Giving page and let people know you had a fantastic time!

Sponsorship can be handed in by popping into the hospice here on Mason Road, between Monday and Friday 8:30 am until 5pm (on a Tuesday and Thursday we are open until 8pm).  You can also hand in sponsorship money to any of our retail shops. Alternatively, please pop a cheque and your sponsor forms in the post to us or call us on 01562 756077 and we can take payment over the phone.

With your help we can continue to help and support over 1,000 local people this year who need our free services. As the Wyre Forest Hospice, we are there for the entire family when someone is living with a life-limiting illness. Our nurse supported Day Hospice and Hospice at Home Service are able to provide essential care at the most difficult time.  Our pre and post bereavement service is available for anyone who has lost a loved one, regardless of the cause. We even have a dedicated service for children.

We are only able to provide these services with your help. Less than a third of our funding comes from the NHS, meaning we rely heavily on the kindness of you, our community to help us raise an incredible 70% of the funds we need to run the hospice each year. Thank you for taking part and raising sponsorship, it does really make an incredible difference to the lives of others.

If you ran in 2017…how did you do?

Please find below the times recorded by Stourport & Kidderminster Athletic Club. Their support on the day was fantastic! Due to so many Santa’s running they unfortunately were unable to time everyone coming over the finish line.
