You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
The big man in red (no, I don’t mean George North) came to town a little early yesterday, courtesy of the annual Festive Fun Run in Llandudno, North Wales, which raises funds for local children’s hospices Hope House and Ty Gobaith.
The charity run attracts hundreds of people each year, who don a Santa suit (or other festive costume) and run a sponsored mile down Llandudno Promenade.
Family-owned Welsh jewellery company Clogau is a long-standing supporter of the event, and indeed both hospices, which provide free respite, terminal and community care to limited life children from across Cheshire, Shropshire and North-Mid Wales, along with essential practical and emotional support to families who are facing the pain of losing their child. The charity needs more than £4 million each year to run the two hospices.
Yesterday, the Roberts clan (including Ben, the company MD, and his sister Samantha, the brand’s Creative Designer) were out in force, clad in scarlet and smiles, to run their mile in style. Their presence underlines the personal commitment behind Clogau’s CSR activities, and the importance the brand places on giving back to its local community. The Christmas spirit shines suitably bright within a company known for its gleaming Welsh gold.
