This year The Huxley, Edinburgh is heavily involved supporting The Great Edinburgh Santa Run 2013 in more ways than one.

Huxley, the fluffy guide dog puppy in training sponsored by The Huxley, Edinburgh, will officially start the Santa Run on Sunday 8th December in West Princes Street Gardens. He will be dressed up as Santa and will be racing his way around the 2km course. Hot on his heels will be The Rutland Hotel and The Huxley’s General Manager Murray Ward being supported by his dog Tyler. Again, both dressed as Santa!

We are supporting all the Santa’s this year by offering coffees for £1.50 throughout the day to all those dressed as Santa and a well-earned burger and a pint for £7.00 to those wearing the jolly red suit!

We are also donating the key prizes to all of the winners in different categories – including the best dressed dog!

If you want to get behind us at The Rutland Hotel and The Huxley and help raise money for the ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ Charity please donate at the Huxley’s Just Giving page

Please come out and support the Santas – it is all for such a good cause. When you wish Upon a Star supports disadvantaged and terminally ill children.

Their aim is to simply make magical memories for a Wish child and their family to remember for a lifetime. By granting a Wish, this enables the family to have a truly amazing time forgetting about hospital routines, doctor’s appointments and the gruelling treatments that have become a daily occurrence and allowing the whole family to smile, laugh and enjoy life!
