Last chance to become a human rainbow for the Hospice

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity will be holding its 4th Colour Rush at Green Park, Aston Clinton on Sunday 7th October. The Charity urges Colour Rushers (new and old) to sign up quickly as this will be the last year for local people to get covered in colour for their Hospice.

“Each year that we’ve done the Colour Rush around 600 people have had a hilarious time running through clouds of incredible colour at this hugely fun event,” says the Charity’s Head of Fundraising, Jo Turner. “Sign up very soon to help us make this event the most colourful ever!”

Like last year, the money raised will support Florrie’s Children’s Team, providing respite care for children with life-limiting conditions in their own homes. Colour Rush has created fantastic memories for families who have done it, and children love it.

“It’s the perfect thing to do with all the family, and you’re allowed to bring your parents,” says Hannah, aged 10. “When you come out at the end, you have colours all over you.”

“You should do Colour Rush for the charity of Florence Nightingale because it’s great to help and you can get covered in paint,” says Aidan, aged 13. “My favourite bit about Colour Rush was paint being chucked at me!”

“Don’t miss out on the fun,” says Jo Turner. “If you participated before and want to do Colour Rush again, or have been meaning to do Colour Rush and haven’t got around to it yet, get registered this year, or miss out!”

To keep their events programme fresh the Charity will be introducing a new family fun event in 2019 as one of the ways of celebrating the Hospice’s 30th birthday.

Colour Rush 2018 is a 5k romp through five colour stations and around Green Park in Aston Clinton at 11am AND 2pm on Sunday 7 October 2018. See website for more details at www.fnhospice.org.uk/colourrush
