Fundraisers indulge in some foamy fun for hospice cause
Hundreds of fundraisers got in a lather for Colchester’s first ever Bubble Rush in aid of hospice care.
The family event was held in High Woods in Colchester to raise funds for the nearby St Helena Hospice.
Participants of all ages ran or walked the five-kilometre country park route, blasted with colourful foamy bubbles along the way at four ‘bubble stations’.
This event was the first of its kind in the area and was declared the charity’s most outrageous challenge to date.
Fliss Strode, events and challenges manager at St Helena Hospice, said: “We had such a fantastic day today, and want to thank everyone who came and joined in the fun.

We wanted to make today (Saturday) one to remember, and I think we achieved that here, judging by the smiles and laughter.
“Every penny raised will continue to help us support patients in the local community with life-limiting illnesses and we can’t continue to deliver this service without help from event participants.
