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.

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over 1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
