A chilly 4th November took us into the centre of Oxford with Helen & Douglas House to help promote their "Santas on the run" event held in December. Alongside us were H&D volunteer staff, members of an Oxford cycling club and a patrol of scouts, every person dressed as Santa.
Once again, following the event we received an email from Helen & Douglas events fundraiser Hannah Smart reading as follows:
Once again, a huge huge thank you for joining us on Saturday with the 4x4. It created such an amazing atmosphere and really captured people’s attention as they walked past. I’ve attached some photos that were taken on the day, you might like to use them for festive advertising (there will be more photos coming by tomorrow). I’ve also spoken to Kasia, our online marketing manager, and she is organising a post to go out by the end of this week for you.
Earlier today, roughly three weeks after the event we received another email from Hannah. We are so happy to have made a difference to the outcome of the event!
I hope you are well? I just wanted to thank you once again for coming along to our Santa Takeover day, we raised just short of £1000 which is incredible considering the main aim of the day was to raise awareness and promote our Santas on the Run event. Your presence on the day really made a huge difference!
