The annual Santas on a Bike fundraiser has raised thousands of pounds for CHSW over the years, while bringing smiles to the faces of people who line the various routes to watch them.

A spokesperson for the organisers of the charity ride said:

“We’re expecting dozens of Santas, riding bikes covered in festive decorations this year and we cannot wait.”

“Please spread the word, invite your friends and support your local children’s hospice – let’s make this the biggest and best year ever.”

“All bikes, trikes and quads are welcome, and the ride is fully L-plate friendly. Don’t worry if you’ve not attended a group ride before, you’ll be made very welcome. The route will be fully marshalled so you won’t get lost.”

“The ride takes place entirely on open public roads so all bikes should be road legal and all normal road rules apply.”


Lucie Perryman, area fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West, said:

“We are really looking forward to seeing the Santas on a Bike again this year and want to say a huge thank you to the event organisers and the riders for all the work that goes into making this happen.”

“This is such a highlight in our festive calendar at Charlton Farm, the families staying love seeing all of the Santas arriving, and the money raised helps the charity to continue to provide vital care and support to local families when they need it most.”
