More than 500 supporters take part in the Colour Run for St Margaret's

On Saturday 14 May, more than 500 Colour Run supporters completed our most colourful event at Taunton Racecourse to raise vital funds for St Margaret’s Hospice Care.

Supporters of all ages enjoyed a warmup from Bounce and Burn, a local fitness group from Bridgwater before they made their way around the colourful route while sporting an array of vibrant outfits including rainbow tutus and sunflowers.

Supporters were given the chance to decorate a dedication bib so they could dedicate their run in memory of a loved one or celebrate the community they live in. The oldest participant to take part was 92 year-old Ernest Procter who completed a lap of the racecourse in memory of his wife, Doris, who was cared for by St Margaret’s.

Ellie Weston, Marketing and Events Officer at St Margaret’s Hospice, said: “We were so glad to finally welcome our Colour Run supporters back after 2 years and had a fantastic day cheering on our participants.

"It was an amazing day with stunning sunshine and lots of colour! A huge well done to everyone who attended and raised valuable sponsorship that allows us to continue supporting patients and their families across Somerset.

“Thank you to Dulux and Mogers Drewett, our joint headline sponsors as well as Dulux, Amicus Law, Avalon Plastics and Cornish Mutual for sponsoring our paint stations and finally to our fantastic volunteers. We can’t wait to see everyone again at our upcoming events."
