A SANTA fun run will be held in Stevenage on Sunday, November 29, to raise money for a children's charity.

The 5km race in Fairlands Valley Park is in aid of Keech Hospice Care - formerly Keech Cottage Children's Hospice - and will be started by the BBC's DIY SOS Billy Byrne.

He said: "When I visit the children's hospice it is heart-warming to see the care and attention the children and their families are given.

"My daughter, Emma, passed away as a result of cancer, so I've had first hand experience of what it is like to go through that as a family."
