Santa fun Run in Gloucester

Santa in GloucesterGloucester City Football Club are delighted to announce that Sunday’s inaugural Gloucester Santa Fun Run in aid of Leukaemia Care was a huge success. In total 138 runners took part - all dressed as Santa Clause - and brought the Christmas spirit to the streets of Gloucester in the process.

Club spokesman Mike Dunstan says “we were delighted with the turn-out, and would like to thank all the runners for entering into the spirit of the occasion. All age groups - from very young children to pensioners took part, and everybody looked great in their Santa suits. Gloucester players - from the first team, and the ladies team also ran, as did first team manager Tim Harris. Everybody had a great time, and we hope that runners will collect in their sponsor money and sent to Leukaemia Care as quickly as possible - we believe that the final sum raised will be a very significant amount, but wont know the total until the money reaches the charity. We fully intend to hold this event again next year - and hopefully it will be even bigger and even better!”
