FUNDRAISERS are set to run through coloured foam and bubbles... all in the name of charity.

The Farleigh Hospice Maldon Bubble Rush will return to Promenade Park, in Park Drive, this weekend.

On Saturday, October 13, runners of all ages will set off on the family-friendly run.

The bubble rush consists of a five kilometre route through the park which can be walked, ran, sprinted or jogged.

The event is suitable for all ages and family groups, with it also being accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Last year the event saw 1,000 people walk, jog, and run the distance with bubble cannons blowing out colourful foam at each of the bubble stations.

This year there are five stations set to spray fundraisers as they take on the course.

The event had been due to take place back in April but had to be postponed.

Organisers took the decision due to “extreme adverse weather” making the route unsafe.

The race will begin at 11am.

Last year the event proved so popular it was sold out and saw 934 runners take to the course.

It helped raise £62,000, which is enough to fund two registered nurses and one healthcare assistant working full-time for a full year.

The hospice supports people within mid Essex who are affected by life-limiting illnesses.

The hospice requires fundraising, donations and gifts left in wills to provide their services, with 40 per cent of their yearly running costs being funded by the NHS.

To provide their services, it costs £16,039 daily.
