Burghfield Santas is a group of local residents that create fun events in the RG7 community to raise money for local charities.
It all started with Santa Cruise 13 years ago when a group of mates went out for a few drinks after making and wrapping many presents, we wore our red suits and raised a little money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance . We did this again and again many times and somewhere along the way we realised that charity fund raising is not just for Christmas but all the year!
Our event calendar now includes the Box Kart Bash which sees 30 crazy karts racing down hill, negotiating obstacles and Burghfest which satisfies our need for good music, good company & good local beer.
We then stopped to count the money and found out that over the years we had raised more than £150,000 for Thames Valley Air Ambulance as well as boosting the coffers of many other local charities.
This year our target is to raise £50,000. So please come along to our events and have fun while supporting some worthwhile local causes.
