Calling all wise men and women, angels and shepherds!

How would you like to take part in the CAFOD’s first ever Nativity Fun Run next month?

CAFOD are inviting people to dress up as their favourite nativity character and join family and friends to walk or run 5km around Clapham Common on 17th December. The fun event aims to raise money to provide vital food, water, shelter and education to millions of families living in poverty throughout the world.

Cold toes and flagging energies will be warmed and revived by Christmas Carols, mince pies and winter Pimms at the Windmill Pub on the Common after the run to celebrate achievements and prize-winning costumes.

“Clapham Common is a beautiful setting and the event will have a truly festive feel with a live orchestra spurring on the runners by playing popular Christmas Carols. I’m sure there will be some highly creative costumes on show whether it be little angels or pantomime donkeys. The run will be entertaining as well as inspiring and offers an opportunity to really get involved in the true spirit of Christmas and do something for those children who will go hungry this year.”

– Kit Lewis, CAFOD Events manager

  1. Great event, very well organised and well attended by a wide spectrum of ages, with some astonishingly inventive and imaginative costumes, and the Windmill a very pleasant place to repair to afterwards. Thanks to all the organisers and helpers.
