The event is sponsored by Kids 1st Nursery, based in Wynyard Park and the fee to take part is £3 for children and £5.50 for adults, with £3 of every booking being donated to Alice House.

Nicola Winwood, a fundraiser at the Hospice said “This has had a great response with around 250 registrations so far and we are expecting the event to be a sell-out.

Jenny Plummer, Nursery Manager at Kids 1st said “We are delighted to be sponsoring this event, as it aims to create magical family moments for everyone involved.

“We are also very proud to be supporting a charity that provides care to local families.”
