Next Sunday it's the annual charity Santa Run around MediaCityUK, which will see hundreds of people legging around the Quays dressed as Santas. There's still time to sign up and get sponsored for a cause of choice, with the headline charity being Key 103's Cash for Kids.

The UKFast Santa Run is back for its fourth year at Media City on Sunday 29th November. The run is just under 5km, starts outside the BBC, then proceeds through the Plaza at The Lowry Outlet Mall, past the Imperial War Museum and over the Manchester Ship Canal bridge before finishing in MediaCityUK.

You can run or walk the route, no times are taken, all finishers get a commemorative medal and children will also get a selection box.

The idea is that those running get sponsored for their own cause, although the headline charity attached to the event is Key 103's Cash for Kids, which aims to provide a present for every disadvantaged young person in Greater Manchester. The Cash for Kids mascot, Courage the Cat, will be there on the day, and the run is also a drop off point for gifts (new and unwrapped for newborns right up to18year olds) or cash that people may wish to donate.

"There are many opportunities throughout the year to run competitively and be cheered on by your family, this is an opportunity to get the whole family from the sidelines and get them involved" says Lawrence Jones CEO of the event's headline sponsor, UKFast.

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
