Can you join us for some festive fundraising?

The Brick help people and families in Wigan who may not have the things we sometimes take for granted, like a nice home to live in, warm clothes to wear, or food to eat.

Would you like to spread some Christmas sparkle and host your very own Santa’s Elf Dash at school, or join our Brick team for the festive 5K Santa Dash ? You can even dress up as an elf, wear your Christmas jumper or Santa outfit!

5K Santa Dash

Join us for the festive 5K Santa Dash at Pennington Flash. Walk, jog or run the 5K route dressed as Santa and raise money for The Brick. Its £5 to enter (To Giddo’s Gift Charity) which includes a mince pie and drink for everyone taking part. Any money raised can go directly to The Brick. So, bring your family, put your Santa outfits on and help spread some festive cheer this Christmas.

5K Santa Dash : Sunday 12th December at 1pm. Meet at the main car park at 12.30pm. Pennington Flash, Pennington Flash Country Park, Lowton, Wigan WN7 3PA


Elf Dash (for schools)

Choose a date and route of your own and gather your elves to sprinkle a little festive sparkle on a festive sponsored fun run. It could be within P.E lessons, in designated areas on lunch, or even spread throughout the day to help with social distancing. A certificate from Santa will be provided to share with your little elves.
