Volunteer to create colourful fun!

The count down has begun to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) Ipswich Colour Dash and organisers calling for any willing volunteers to help on the day.

The EACH Colour Dash will be held on Sunday 7th June, in Christchurch Park, Ipswich. Colour dashes are the newest craze to hit the UK and see participants race around a 5km course as they are showered with clouds of coloured powder – creating truly impressive multi-coloured results!

Event organisers are asking anyone who doesn’t feel energetic enough to take part but would still like to be involved in the colourful fun to consider volunteering as a marshal on the day.

Patsy Johnson-Cisse, EACH Fundraiser, explained: “We’re all really excited to be hosting the EACH Colour Dash in Ipswich for the second year running. We’re on the look out for marshals for the event, to be dotted around the course, cheering on our runners and steering them in the right direction.
“The event is so colourful and great to watch, the atmosphere on the day makes it so worth while to be involved in – so if you’re interested in finding out more we’d love to hear from you.”

More than 500 places have been sold so far for the colour dash but spaces are still available.

Patsy continued: “We’ve had pallets full of paint powder lots of colours delivered last week and a mountain of white t-shirts and medals so we’re nearly all set for a fun day! Places for the day are selling really well, so if you do want to take part I’d encourage you to book now to avoid disappointment.”

The Samboomba Band will be coming along on the day to keep participants and well wishers entertained.

The event had kindly been sponsored by Pure Resourcing Solutions (Pure) in Ipswich.

The EACH Ipswich Colour Dash will be held on Sunday 7th June, in Christchurch Park, Ipswich. Tickets are available now – adult (£20) child (£10) Team (£175) Family (£45).
