Lindsey Lodge Hospice is spreading Christmas cheer across North Lincolnshire with more than 20 festive events in December. There are festive fairs, carol services and of course the not-to-be-missed festive family event called Santa Stride on Saturday, December 12.

“Our event calendar is packed this December with fun-filled action for all the family and they are inexpensive to attend too,” said Mel Banham, head of fundraising at Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

“Our Carol Service will be a fantastic Christmassy event featuring The Elderberries and it is donation only to enter.

“Another family friendly event is Santa Stride and we already have 100 people entering.

“There are another 50 free Santa suits available for entrants- so don’t be too late to get yours!

“It’s a fun 2.5km walk for all abilities starting at the New Life Church in Scunthorpe.

“We truly appreciate people attending our events because they make a real difference to the care of people in North Lincolnshire with end of life illnesses.”
