This story is over

A total of 3,000 people have pledged more than £150,000 to St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice after taking part in the Colour Dash 5k run over the weekend.

The independent charity teamed up with local events supplier, Running Imp, to host the fundraiser on Saturday, May 13 at the Lincolnshire Showground.

Participants as young as five-years-old were hit with environmentally friendly powdered paint as they ran the five-kilometre course.

Becky Otter, Event Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said: “The amount of money that has been raised from this event is absolutely fantastic and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part or who pledged their support.

“It was brilliant to see families enjoying a fun day, while raising money for hospice care across Lincolnshire.

“The money raised from this event will directly impact the care and services we provide. Last year we supported more than 9,000 people across the county and this year we hope to care for even more.”
