Victoria Rigby, owner of at-home care company, Home Instead in Epping Forest, enlisted a little help from her friends in order to raise money for local charity St Clare Hospice, by taking part in their annual Santa Dash on Sunday 9th December.

Hundreds of local people donned their Santa suits to run, walk or jog the 4th annual 4km fun run, which took place at the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker. The Santa Dash not only helps raise money for the hospice but is an opportunity for people to remember a loved one who may have passed away over the Christmas period.

St Clare Hospice was established in 1990 to investigate the provision of palliative care within West Essex. The charity now provides care to thousands of people in the local area.

Victoria commented, “As a company who specialise in providing care to older people, St Clare Hospice is a charity which is extremely close to our hearts and we’re passionate about raising awareness of the fantastic work they do within our community.”

We’re a new company to the area and as such, felt it was really important to get involved and make a difference to the lives of local people. We had such fun and I’m so pleased that we managed to raise £110 for St Clare’s and I’m sure that we will be getting involved again in a big way next year.”
