CAFOD call for Christmas fun run

Anybody looking to run off the effects of all those mince pies and Christmas pudding has the perfect opportunity on 27 December with the 31st annual CAFOD Fun Run.

The event takes place at The Mystery, Wavertree Park and all proceeds will go to the Syrian refugee crisis, where CAFOD is working through trusted church partners in Syria to get vital aid and supplies to vulnerable people.

"The fun run is a fantastic event for all the family to join in after Christmas," said Mike Dooling, who organises the run along with founder Mike Merriman. "We have two start times – 12.30 for families and 1.15 for keen runners who want to hit their Christmas personal best!"

There will be prizes for the best fancy dress, music from jazz band The Rioters, and hot food and drink. To register, go to or call 0151 228 4028.
