Snowdude and Santa Christmas run 2016

It's that time of year again !!!

#snowdude time !!!!!

We thought last year was big, this year we blew it out the park, rather than just sticking with Stapleford and surrounding areas we also put Neitherfield and Carlton on the Snowdude map as well.

This year we did things a little differently, last year was totally free of charge and was done as light hearted humour but due to the overwhelming demand we decided to up our game this time and take charitable donations that would go to the Nottingham Hospitals Charity all the money collected on 2nd and 3rd December will be delivered there on the 9th of December in person by Snowdude himself where he will visit the Childrens wards bringing some Christmas fun and joy.

Both nights we set off at 5pm, on Friday we finished at 9pm, however the Saturday we finished at 11pm as we had a few un expected stops along the way like Hooters and Inn For A Penny in Carlton for a pint.

Huge thank you to everyone who made this possible as this couldn't have been done without your love, help and support.

Please take your time to read below the names of the people who made this possible.
