WARRINGTON and Halton Teaching Hospitals’ Charity has launched its Christmas fundraisers for 2020.

The charity is hoping to make this year extra special and raise more than ever before for much-needed additional support.

The festive ‘Jingle all the Way’ virtual fun run event will be taking place until Christmas Eve.

Participants can run, jog, walk, cycle, skip, hop or dance as many miles as possible, in optional fancy dress, to help the charity cover the 2,193 miles between Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals and Lapland.

To enter as a family/ household bubble or individual, people need to donate a minimum of £5 via the charity's Just Giving page at justgiving.com/warringtonandhaltonhospitals and put #Xmasevent on their donation with their contact details.

Entrants can even share photos and videos of their festive fun by using #Togetherweareamazing or by emailing WHH.Charity@nhs.net.

The Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals’ Charity is also running its annual toy appeal.

Unwrapped toy donations, to the value of £5, for newborns to 18-year-olds, can be accepted until Friday, December 18 at the charity hub office at Warrington Hospital and the general office at Halton Hospital.
