Their incredible generosity has allowed us to present this wonderful donation to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice"
Adam Brunskill, Senior Community Fundraiser Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice said: "This extremely generous donation will help us make sure we can keep offering our expert palliative care and support; £27,000 is incredible and shows just how immensely popular the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run is.
