The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) Colour Dash took place at Nowton Park on Sunday, with participants being showered in coloured powder as they took on the 5km course.

Organisers say the event will end up raising more than £6,000 for the children’s hospice.

Natasha Brame, community fundraiser, said: “Everyone had a fantastic day at the colour dash, we had 450 runners take part and it was a colour filled, fun day.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, our amazing volunteers and our wonderful performers, Roma as well as the Hotshots Twirling and Display Team. We couldn’t do it without them.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
