NEW FOREST VW SANTA RUN

  • Over 150 VW's arrived at Beaulieu to start their sixth annual New Forest Santa Run in 2018, taking toys and craft items to Southampton General Hospital Piam Brown Unit which cares for children up to the age of 18 with cancer.

    The charity run was so successful that not only were presents gathered for the Piam Brown unit for children and teenagers with cancer and haematological disorders, but there were enough gifts for children spending December in other wards across the whole hospital.

    The event is open to all classic and custom VWs who are participating in the Santa Run; from split-screens, Beetles, buggies, golfs and caddies to T4s and T5s.

    In 2018 prizes were given to the most eye-catching participants who entered into the Christmas spirit, with jolly festive costumes for themselves and their VWs: Best Dressed Family, Best Dressed Dog and Best Dressed Van.
