Virtual Colour Run

Join our first ever Virtual Colour Run!

Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 August

We were unable to bring you our two Colour Run events in the normal way this year, due to covid-19 but we’re not about to let it stop you getting your colour on for St Margaret’s Hospice Care this summer! Introducing our first ever Virtual Colour Run which is happening on the August bank holiday weekend.

Simply complete a run of any distance your way and help spread a rainbow of joy by wearing the brightest colours possible. Whether you rock a tie-dye tee, get crazy with hair colours or go fully fledged rainbow warrior with flashy face paint, we want you to get colourful and creative. Take on your run (whilst following current Government guidelines of course), have a paint party and award yourself with your Colour Run medal.

Join us on August bank holiday weekend!

You can do your Virtual Colour Run whenever you like, but we will be live on Facebook on the 29 and 30 August. Over the weekend there will be virtual warm-ups, live stream encouragement from our CEO and more.

Join the The Virtual Colour Run Facebook event so you don’t miss out!

Your sponsorship can make a difference

Any sponsorship your raise from family, friends and colleagues goes towards the care and support St Margaret’s nurses, therapists and doctors provide for our patients and their families.


£30 could help towards the cost of books and soft toys that can be used to prepare a child for the loss of someone they love.


£50 could help towards the cost of a family session with a specialist counsellor.



£100 could help towards the cost of a Specialist Community Nurse visit for one of our local patients being cared for at home.


You can set up a fundraising page through Just Giving or Facebook Fundraising, or download a free sponsorship form. If you would prefer to make a donation rather than raise sponsorship, you can do so through the booking form below.

No matter how much you raise, every penny will help us continue to be here for people facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset.

This event is proudly sponsored by Western Power Distribution.
