A POPULAR annual fundraiser added plenty of colour to the weekend.

The Colour Run in aid of Nightingale House Hospice took place at Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse on Sunday morning.

Jointly sponsored this year by Wrexham businesses DTCC and Moneypenny, the run offered participants the chance to walk, run or jog through four kilometres of powder paint ‘colour explosions’ as well as foam bubble pits to raise money for the hospice.

This year DTCC had at least 18 members of staff taking part with others manning paint stations to make sure no-one escaped a blitz of colour.

Hospice event organiser Luke McDonald said: “I’m not sure who enjoys this event more, the children or adults.

"It’s not about fitness. It’s about taking part, doing it at your own pace and raising vital income for the local hospice.”

All participants who took part in the event were given sunglasses, a medal, cereal bar and paint to throw.

This year Nightingale House must find £3,059,495 million this year to help pay for the free palliative care facilities and services the hospice provides patients and their families.
