VISITORS to a shopping centre in South Normanton will be forgiven for thinking they are seeing double when it stages a Santa run.

McArthurGlen’s East Midlands Designer Outlet will see dozens of speedy Santas hot footing it around the venue at its charity Santa Dash on On Sunday, December 18.

It will raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in Sheffield. Runners will be given outfits to dress up as Santa for the event, as they help raise cash towards the £2.5million running costs of the charity, which offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy.

The Santa Dash will be the first ever in aid of Bluebell Wood and will be a 1.1-mile circuit around the centre starting at 8.30am.

Donna Goodwin, marketing manager there, said: “The Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is vital to the North East Midlands community as it is the only hospice in the area that supports children with shortened life expectancy and their families.”
