Burghfield Santa Cruise 2019
The Bulging Sack Xmas 22-Dec-2019

It all started with Santa Cruise 14 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 Easter too. The Bunny Hop was born, closely followed by Burghfest which satisfied our need for good music, good company & good local beer.

The next challenge was to return racing to the historical home of the Auclum Hill Climb, so in 2017 we launched the annual Box Kart Bash.

In 2018, we commissioned an exclusive beer, Santa Brews, for Burghfest. This was so popular that we had to sell it at Christmas, so we opened The Bulging Sack, our very own Pop Up Pub.

Last year, we raised a truly astonishing £38,000 for a range of great local causes including, of course, the amazing Thames Valley Air Ambulance .

Thanks for all your support and let’s see if we can beat this figure in 2019.
