From St Michael’s Hospice:

Exciting news…

The last of our Christmas reindeer have come trotting back in and we’re delighted to announce that, thanks to all the schools and nurseries across Herefordshire who took part in our first ever Reindeer Run, we raised an incredible £42,617.50.

Over 4,500 youngsters from 26 primary schools and nurseries took part.

‘We were blown away by the level of support shown by our community,’ said event organiser, Gaynor Warren.

‘Thank you to every parent, grandparent, relative, friend and neighbour who donated and, of course, to every child who donned a pair of antlers and a reindeer nose and enjoyed a socially distanced walk, jog or run with their friends’.
