Dashing for Santa!

Coretek took part in the Santa Dash (Lymington) on the 6th of December 2015!

The Santa Dash is a fundraising event for the Oakhaven Hospice Trust. It involves a ‘3km run, walk, jump or stroll’….dressed as Santa! This event took place throughout Lymington High Street and Town Centre but started at Lymington Community Centre at 11:30am. Each contender paid a contribution of £12.50 towards the hospice.

The Oakhaven Hospice provide specialist care to patients, carers and families who are facing complex physical, emotional and practical difficulties arising from advanced progressive life-limiting illnesses. The Hospice supports these patients through partnership, collaboration, advice and education.

The Oakhaven Hospice begun in the late 1980’s and was opened as a community based service in 1992 by the Duchess of Kent. Since then their free of charge services have grown to care for over 250,000 residents in the New Forest and Waterside area.

This is the third year running that Coretek have take part in the event and each year have seen it grow from 850 ‘Santas’ to an astonishing 1400 ‘Santas’ this year! We hope to take part again next year.
