Once again an intrepid team from Sawyer & Co took part in the annual 5K Santa Dash along Brighton and Hove seafront on Saturday 12th December.
This annual seasonal event saw a team of our very keen estate agents and directors, dressed in Santa’s finest, literally dashing to raise money for local children’s charity, Rockinghorse, the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.
Rockinghorse raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs. They also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and its sister site, the Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.
Every pound raised from this year’s Santa Dash will help to purchase a basket of presents for little patients at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital to keep, items include rattles and musical shakers, mobiles to brighten up hospital rooms, cuddly toys, books and handmade blankets.
It was a great event and a brilliant atmosphere as usual. A few hundred Santa’s running 5k along the seafront is quite a sight. The fabulous brass band helped make this an extremely Christmassy affair.
