A Successful Santa Run

The Annual VW Santa Run took place on Sunday 26th November running from Beaulieu to Southampton Hospital delivering an incredible amount of donations to our patients!

We were rockin’ around the Christmas campervans at Beaulieu as The Jingle Ladies brought us some festive cheer through song.

The best dressed award this year went to one of our four legged friends although there were some fantastic contenders. You can view everyone’s efforts in the gallery below.

This year surpassed all others with the amount of presents, donations and funds raised on the VW Santa Run with a value of almost £10,000!

An incredible effort from all those involved and will go a long way to make Christmas magical for our patients here at the hospital.
