Leading accountancy firm JW Hinks is encouraging families, friends and workmates across Birmingham to take part in this year’s Jingle Bell Jog.
The annual charity fun run takes place in the beautiful Kings Heath Park on Sunday 4December.
All participants of the Jingle Bell Jog are given a free Santa suit and bushy white beard to compete in the two kilometre amble, and will be rewarded with a festive medal and a free mince pie just for competing.
JW Hinks recently announced that Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice – the charity which holds the Jingle Bell Jog each December – as their Charity of the Year.
It means that the Edgbaston-based accountancy firm will be hosting charity events for the next 12 months, with all proceeds going to the Hospice which cares for more than 1,200 sick and terminally ill people each year.
Neal Aston, managing partner at JW Hinks, is encouraging as many people as possible to take part in this year’s Jingle Bell Jog.
“We’ve teamed up with Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice this year because of the amazing work they do,” he said.
“We want to see families, friends and workmates dressed in Santa suits and beards running, jogging, or walking through Kings Heath on Sunday 4 December.”
Registration for the Jingle Bell Jog costs £15 for adults, £8 for children (5 – 16 years) and is free for under-fives.
Families (two adults and up to three children aged five years plus) can grab a saver ticket for £40.
The registration fee includes a free Santa suit for adults and children (Christmas hat for under-fives), mince pie and a runner’s medal.
