LOCAL NEWS: Volunteers needed for Poole Hospitals Elf Dash


Poole Hospital are hosting their fourth annual Elf Dash fundraiser on Sunday 8th December. 

The event hopes to raise £30,000 for the hospital in the run up to Christmas. 

This year the event will start at 11.30am at new venue, Poole Cycle Speedway. The dash route will take runners around the beautiful Baiter Park before returning to meet Father Christmas and his helpers at his Grotto.

The event is open to the whole family – you can even bring your dogs along. There will be a Santa Express MoreBus and some sparkly VW camper vans to admire, and mascot Gully Bear will be there to give out free hugs, fist bumps and selfies.

Tickets are £8 for adults, £6 for children and under 3’s and dogs free of charge. The price of entry includes mince pies and hot drinks kindly provided by Co-op at Hamworthy.

All dashers will receive an elf hat and medal, and children will receive a gift from Father Christmas.

You can buy your tickets here, or from the fundraising office, north entrance, Poole Hospital.
