The Great Santa Run


If you ever want to take part in a race that is not only GREAT fun but also for a GREAT cause then look no further than THE GREAT SANTA RUN! (Edinburgh).


Held to primarily raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation ( The Great Santa Run accommodates for young/old, running/walker and those just wanting a laugh and a nice picture for the front of a Christmas Card!

For me this race ticks all the boxes…
1. Fancy Dress ✔️
2. Fitness ✔️
3. Fun ✔️

With the option of a 5k or 2k we opted for the slightly shorter route due to a tearful baby and a Bah Humbug Husband.


However, I’m not often deterred so I took my role as a Santa Runner pretty seriously….


and then made it onto the STV News website…


..and then featured in this week’s Evening News!!


A cold but fun day for a great cause.

Thanks to all those who sponsored TEAM PROJECTHIRTY.

Much appreciated.


That’s it for my fundraising efforts until next year. In the pipeline…

– The Where’s Wally Race (in London but can be organised for Edinburgh!)

– The Electric Run (coming to Burgh soon!)

– The FIRST EVER PROJECTHIRTY Children’s book! (Yes I’m excited about this!)

…and anything else that pops up!!

I’m only fundraising until September so 9 months to go. Then ALL money raised will go to Kwa Njenga Primary School.

If you’d like to help Kwa Njenga with PROJECTHRITY then get in touch.

Would love your support.

See you next year x

I knew that The Compass School were brilliant at fundraising but I never expected for one minute that £700 would be the grand total for PROJECTHIRTY following the Christmas Fair.

Yes…£700!!! Incredible.

I want to say a massive thank you to all the staff, parents and pupils of The Compass School for their continued support of PROJECTHIRTY and I look forward to sharing with them how the money has been used to help Kwa Njenga Primary School.

Here are a few more snaps from the Fair..

The Compass School Christmas Fair

When Mrs Jenkinson contacted me to say that Forms 1,2 and 3 wanted to help me raise money for Projecthirty I was extremely grateful. However, having attended the Fair today I was blown away, not only the hard work and dedication of the boys and girls but the generosity of all those who attended.

From Christmas Cards, to reindeer dust, home baking, goodie bags, bobbles, competitions (I thought there were 150 sweeties in the jar!) and so much more.






It’s hard to believe that the children behind this are pre-school, primary one and primary two!

Even more impressive was the Christmas jumpers worn by the whole school in support of the Christmas Fair and Projecthirty. It was also a great reason for me to find a cute Christmas jumper for the occasion.


I am looking forward to hearing the grand total on Monday – apparently to be announced at Assembly..I’ll keep you posted.

Thank you Compass School.

If your school would like to help Kwa Njenga Primary School via Projecthirty just drop me a message…especially if there will be home baking 🙂 ha ha!

Much love and Christmas cheer!
