The Accord Hospice Santa Dash will take place on Sunday 9th December at 10am in Barshaw Park. This was a very successful event for Accord last year with 135 Santas taking part.

The suggested minimum sponsorship is £15 and santa suits will be supplied. There will also be a free kids race thereafter, again with suits supplied for the first 50 entrants.

Whilst some participants may take it more seriously than others, this is very much designed as a fun run to suit all levels of ability. Walkers are also very welcome.

Dobbies Santa

Our campaign, along with Maura Currie, (@mauracurrie & @paisleyorguk ) has been resolved by Dobbies and Santa will now appear in the Paisley store, here is the press release from the Dobbies Facebook page. This decision was taken after intense campaigning via Twitter and Facebook with the help of the Paisley Daily Express’s Alison Rennie. We spoke to Amanda from Dobbies Garden centre’s press team who confirmed that they have now reversed their decision for Santa to not visit the store, and he will now be appearing on the dates below.
