The Sussex Snowdrop Trust is delighted that the 'Jingle Bell Jog' is to return this year us for a fun run, walk, dance, jog or jingle around Chichesters Priory Park on Sunday 5 December
to raise much-needed funds for The Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
Westgate Leisure Centre in Chichester is getting into the Christmas spirit as it announces it will be hosting its popular Jingle Bell Jog.
The centre, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Chichester District Council, is inviting the local community to run, walk, dance, jog or jingle their way around Chichesters Priory Park.
Taking place on Sunday 5 December, the event will raise funds for The Sussex Snowdrop Trust a unique charity that provides nursing care at home for local children who have a life-threatening illness or may be terminally ill.
Stuart Mills, Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said: Were thrilled to be holding the Jingle Bell Jog again this year, and it will be fantastic to see so many people show their support for such a worthy cause.
Wed like to invite the local community to get dressed up for Christmas and join us in raising some much-needed funds whilst having fun getting active. Santa suits and Christmas jumpers arent compulsory but are positively encouraged!
After what has been a difficult year, we hope this event will put a smile on peoples faces.
Roy Briscoe, Cabinet Member for Community Services and Culture at Chichester District Council, said: We are looking forward to welcoming the Jingle Bell Jog to Priory Park this year. This is a great opportunity for people to come together in the fresh air to get active and have fun, all while raising money for a great cause.
As a council, we work closely with Everyone Active to ensure that we continue to provide high quality sport and leisure opportunities across our district, and so we hope to see lots of people in the park taking part in this festive family event.
