And for 2021-2022, they’ll be sponsoring four family-fun events. Including this year’s Night Run in September and Santa Dash in December.

Together with two brand new events for 2022, the fundraisers are expected to bring in £163,000.

The money will be used to provide respite, palliative and end-of-life care to children living with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across the Fylde coast.
