Santas dash for cash for Blood Bikes Wales

ADULTS, children, babies and dogs took part in the annual Santa Dash today, Sunday (Dec 9) raising funds for Blood Bikes Wales.

Whilst some are at home relaxing and maybe putting up Christmas decorations, others were dressed as Santa and running around Llanelli.

The event began in the Spring Gardens. Right on cue of the whistle being blown, the rain fell and the run started.

The five kilometre run went past the Leisure Centre, over the blue bridge, around Sandy Water Park and finished at the North Dock cafe.

Despite the cold and wet weather all participants stuck it out until the end all in aid of a great cause. Was it worth it? Of course it was. They even managed to sneak in some lovely food at the Grill Restaurant on Queen Victoria Road.

Blood Bikes Wales help the health service in Wales by transporting life saving supplies such as blood, plasma and documents. They believe that for each pound they receive in donations, the NHS will save at least five pounds.

Speaking to Llanelli Online, the organiser of the event Clare Doyle said: ”It is the third year running, it is a very successful annual event.

“You can make such a difference to not only raise awareness and funds for a great cause but to also bring people together.

“Thanks to everyone who has helped out with the charity.”
