The fourth Santas on a Bike charity fundraising will be held next month.

Taking place on Saturday, December 11, Santas on a Bike will see hundreds of motorbikes gather for a mass ride-out and festive celebration all in aid of Rebecca House Children’s Hospice in Braddan.

Following the same route as the 2020 event, riders are invited to don their Christmas costumes and jump on their bikes, to raise money for the children’s charity.

The festive ride out, organised by telecommunications and platform provider, begins at the Sea Terminal, before heading through Douglas via the NSC, then down to Castletown before returning to cross the finish line at the Hospice building at the Strand.

Nicola Patterson, event organiser and director of people experience at commented: ’We were super grateful to be able to host the 2020 event after the year we had with Covid, but we had a recording-breaking year in terms of both the number of riders and the amount raised, hitting more than £35,000.

’This year we hope to see another 200 santas involved in the celebrations as we spread some festive cheer following another tough year.’

She continued: ’We’re always blown away and incredibly grateful for the support we receive, from riders to spectators, companies to the police, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we have in store for this year’s event.’

Chief executive of Hospice Isle of Man Anne Mills added: ’Santas on a Bike is such an exciting event and is a firm favourite of ours.

’We look forward to it throughout the year.

’We are beyond grateful to for choosing Rebecca House to be the event’s chosen charity.

’It’s one that we always make sure to get the children of Rebecca House involved in, they always have a fantastic day.’

Mrs Mills continued: ’The past two years have both brought their challenges to many people in different ways, including Hospice and Rebecca House, so now more than ever it’s important to continue to have such wonderful support from local businesses, such as and I can’t thank them enough for their support.’

With a slightly different start time this year, riders are asked to meet at the Sea Terminal from 11am, for a prompt midday start before returning to Rebecca House for a 2pm finish, where there will be food, refreshments and festive entertainment.
