Rudy’s Run, in partnership with EBP
St Barnabas launch Reindeer ‘Rudy’s Run’ in partnership with EBP
Spread a little festive cheer with St Barnabas Hospice and register your school, pre-school or nursery for ‘Rudy’s Run’ this Christmas.
Registering for Rudy’s Run is FREE and includes pairs of antlers and red noses for each child and a Santa costume for one lucky teacher. The Hospice will also send a ‘virtual’ assembly from Father Christmas himself, and information about how the Hospice could support you, your staff and pupils in the future.
Rudy’s Run gives all children a chance to get involved, dress up and spread a little (and much needed) Christmas spirit this winter. We just ask each child to raise £5 to support the Hospice through a group Just Giving page.
Why Rudy’s Run is perfect for your school, group or nursery
St Barnabas have partnered with Lincolnshire’s Education Business Partnership (EBP) to make sure Rudy’s Run offers everything you need. It’s simple, COVID safe and free to register. We understand these are unprecedented, difficult times for teachers, which is why we include an activity pack and all your costumes to make planning the day as easy as possible.
About the Hospice
St Barnabas Hospice is renowned for its outstanding end of life care for adults, but they also provide pre and post bereavement support for families too. This invaluable support is free for anyone in Lincolnshire who is struggling with loss, and more work is being done at St Barnabas to create a specialist bereavement service for children as young as five.
Losing a parent, sibling or grandparent can be extremely traumatic for a child and sadly something 1 in 30 children will be going through each day. Rudy’s Run has been designed to promote this service and fundraise to keep this and St Barnabas Hospice’s overall mission ‘to offer compassionate, end of life care’ going throughout the charities toughest year to date.
A message from St Barnabas Hospice
“With events, productions like Pantomime and gatherings postponed this year, we wanted to provide Lincolnshire families, schools and activity groups a ‘readymade’ Christmas event they can hold safely in their bubble at home, school, pre -school or nursery.
Rudy’s Run isn’t a race, but a chance to run, walk or prance at school, in your garden or at your after-school club to raise vital funds for Lincolnshire’s Hospice, St Barnabas.
