The annual Wimbledon Common Santa 5k Parkrun took place this Saturday 14th December, with stem4 lucky enough to be the beneficiary of their Christmas collection. The event was a fun, festive success with runners turning up wearing red or fancy dress –with many choosing to don a Santa hat. Guests were ou t in Christmas dress too for support and encouragement! The Parkrun itself was, as usual free to participate in, but donations to stem4 were welcomed.

stem4 volunteers and staff were at the event from 8.30am with collection buckets, supporting the runners and accepting generous contributions. Post-race, the runners and volunteers alike enjoyed a festive time with stem4 logo cakes, mince pies and more. stem4 extends a big thankyou to the Wimbledon Parkrun and their participants for their ongoing support and charitability. As a Merton based charity stem4 are delighted to be supported by our local community.
