WORCESTER'S floods have forced a hospice to change the location of its Santa Dash.

St Richard's Hospice said due to the river Severn breaking its banks in Worcester its Santa Dash will now take place at Worcester Woods Country Park.

The event date and time remain the same, with registration from 9am on Sunday, 10 December, and the dash beginning at 10am.

The dash will set off from County Hall Car Park 1, Spetchley Road, Worcester with free parking available.

There will be festive music and a warm up by dance instructor Ellie Hawkins.

A St Richard's Hospice spokesperson said: "Unfortunately, due to the terrain of the new route, it will not be suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs.

"We apologise to anyone affected by this and ask them to get in touch with appeals@strichards.org.uk.

"We have been in touch to update all our Santa Dashers and are looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday morning for a jolly 2.5K or 5K jog around Worcester Woods."
