Santa is going to be strolling on the banks of the River Foyle on Saturday, December 10th to support the fantastic work of the Foyle Hospice and he wants lots of local Santas to join him.

Starting at 11am from Sainsbury’s going along the riverside walk to the Peace Bridge and then crossing over to the Ebrington site, this fun event will raise much needed funds for the Foyle Hospice. This will be a leisurely stroll along the river Foyle onto the peace bridge which is open to all, children under 14 years must be accompanied by an adult.

Let’s makes this a spectacular sight with Santas lining the Peace Bridge en route to Ebrington Square.

Remember how the city looked when we had a record breaking 13,000 Santas on parade in 2007. Help us create that same effect on the Peace Bridge. All monies raised on the stroll will go to help Foyle Hospice deliver their services within our community, through our Home care team, day therapy unit and our in-patient unit. The home-care team works with the many patients who wish to remain at home. The Hospice has a team of specialist Home-care sisters who work closely with GPs and District nurses. The Foyle Hospice nine bed in-patient unit receives patients for respite care or for pain and symptom control with a view to being discharged home. Patients are also admitted for specialist care and support in the terminal phase of their illness. The day-care team provide a wide range of activities while also offering carers at home the opportunity to have a short break from looking after an ill friend or relative.

By joining us on our Santa stroll you will help make that difference to the lives of many people living with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
