Staff from Cwmbran’s Hollywood Bowl are covering the distance from the North Pole to Hollywood and back before Christmas Eve.

They’ve teamed up with Barnardo’s to raise money for the charity. The Race Santa activity will see Hollywood Bowl Cwmbran team members encouraged to walk, run, swim and cycle the 7,724 mile distance from the North Pole to Hollywood, and back again.

The initiative has run throughout December, with teams logging their hours online, with the aim to complete the full distance before Christmas Eve to beat Santa to it.

Steve Burns, CEO at Hollywood Bowl, said: “Not only is the Race Santa activity a unique and fun way to raise essential funds for Barnardo’s, but it’s also been encouraging our teams to make the most of their well-being and leisure time and get them more active. We’re hopeful that with the involvement of all of our centre teams and Hemel support office that we will beat Santa to Hollywood and back in no time.”

Having started earlier in the year, Hollywood Bowl’s continued charity partnership with Barnardo’s will allow the bowling operator to fundraise throughout its 62 UK centres and central support centre to provide donations for Barnardo’s to continue its work.

Martin Howard, Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager at Barnardo’s, said: “We are delighted that colleagues at Hollywood Bowl Group are racing Santa to Hollywood this Kidsmas! Their support will help us support the most vulnerable children, young people and families during the festive season and beyond – we wish the team the very best of luck with the challenge!”
