The pandemic has revealed the pain and damage of isolation and loneliness across our community, not just amongst older people but for younger people too.
That’s why we need your support. Be part of the solution and join South London Cares on 5th or 6th December to take on our remote 5km Santa Run 🎅🤶💨
Merrily run, walk or dash around your favourite park in your festive outfit – we’ll even send you a South London Cares t-shirt and special Santa hat to make sure you look extra festive!
And most importantly, by taking part you’ll be helping to raise those all-important funds to keep older and younger neighbours connected during the cold winter months
How to get involved
❶ Sign up: To take part complete the form and we’ll send you across all the details you need to get dash-ing.
