Saturday’s Santa Dash led by Exmouth’s Mayor
Dashing Santas to aid global poverty fight through Christian Aid fundraiser
THERE will be Santas dashing around Exmouth on Saturday, raising money to fight global poverty.
Leading the festive Santa Dash will be Exmouth Mayor, Councillor Darryl Nicholas, who wants as many people to dress up and join in the festive fundraise for Christian Aid’s Christmas Appeal, outside Knobblies bike shop on Exeter Road for a 12.30pm start.
Exmouth Christian Aid volunteer Deborah Da’Bell said: “Aside from the obvious novelty of a large number of Santas dashing through Exmouth, this is such a wonderful opportunity to have fun as a community this Christmas, while giving something to those less fortunate.
“After all, how often do any of us get an opportunity to give a Christmas present that will potentially save lives?”
