Fancy dressing up in a stupid costume and running around London Streets?
Do you want to help raise awareness for Cancer Research?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions then you are in luck, because in Convent Garden Market, London is The Great Christmas Pudding Race.
It is one of the most exciting events of the festive period in aid of Cancer Research UK, and will be taking place tomorrow on Saturday 4th December 2010 at 11:15am.
Thousands gather to dress up in fancy dress clothes, as cartoon or Disney characters or silly clowns to run an obstacle course and raise money for charity!
This year there are special appearances by Charles Court Opera and the West End Gospel Choir, as well as BBC Celebrity MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner.
2010 is the 30th successive year the Great Christmas Pudding Race has been organised by Cancer Research Aid Committee (CRAC) on behalf of Cancer Research UK and supported by Matthew Walker and Covent Garden Market.
Even with the freezing weather conditions that have swept the UK over the past couple of weeks, wrap up warm and have a fun day out that is guaranteed with entertainment, guest celebrities and the chance for you and your company team/family to receive full media coverage.
Last year the event raised £19,000 but over the 30 years it’s been taking place the race has contributed over £900,000 and helped provide vital equipment and facilities for Cancer Research UK.
Previous celeb involvement include Matthew Kelly, Bill Oddie, the cast of Eastenders, Cats and Dancing in The Street, Timothy Spall, Jon Snow, Ali Bongo, Fay Presto, Seamus Cullen, Andy Abraham, Kevin Kyle, Bonnie Langford and All Angels.
CRAC is part of the voluntary movement of Cancer Research UK, which is the world’s leading charity dedicated to cancer research, funding over 4,500 scientists, doctors and nurses based throughout the UK.
All monies raised will go to Cancer Research UK, for more information on how to sponsor or donate visit http://www.xmaspuddingrace.org.uk/Home.html
