The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) Ipswich Santa Run will take place on December 13 with enthusiastic fundraisers taking on a course around the town centre.

Kesha Allen, EACH events intern, said: “We are excited to host this year’s Santa Run in the heart of the town centre along a new route.

“Kay Fletcher will be joining us again to warm up our excited runners.
