Raising Vital Funds for CHAS this Christmas

Raising Vital Funds for CHAS this Christmas

9th November, 2021

Dalkeith Country Park’s Spectacle of Light and Santa Fun Run are set to raise vital funds for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) this Christmas

Dalkeith Country Park has been in a charity partnership with CHAS since May 2019. We’ve been raising money for children with life limiting conditions through a series of events and donations from across the business. As our partnership draws to a close on December 31st, to allow Dalkeith Country Park to create opportunities with another charity in 2022, the team at Dalkeith Country Park is determined to raise as much as possible. The Park’s Santa Fun Run and the Rainbow’s End feature within Spectacle of Light will be the last two major fundraising drives where you can help Dalkeith Country Park raise money for CHAS children and families.

Rainbow’s End at Spectacle of Light

‘The Rainbow’s End’ in Spectacle of Light is a beautiful area dedicated to CHAS. When visiting the event you can make contactless donations to tie rainbow ribbons of gratitude between the park’s trees. Last year the feature generated £3,100 which the team here are hoping to beat this Christmas – with your help.

Stephen Begg, sales and events manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We know from our colleagues at CHAS that the last year and a half has been an incredibly difficult time for CHAS families. Even more than in normal times. To be able to raise money for CHAS children through family focussed events like Spectacle of Light and our Santa Fun Run brings an extra dimension of meaning to Christmas at Dalkeith Country Park.”
