BOLTON Hospice is hoping for a full house at its first ever “colour run” thanks to the support of Mecca Bingo staff.

The new 5k event will see hundreds of runners get covered in powdered paint as they dash round Queens Park on Sunday, August 31.

Mecca Bingo will sponsor the pink station and Bolton Hospice are hoping other businesses will do the same. Maria Passarello, events manager at Bolton Hospice, said: “We are hoping that local companies like Mecca Bingo will get involved with this exciting and fun event that is proving to be very popular.

“We want everyone to celebrate life in colour and have a happy and fun day.

“It’s going to be messy and the most colourful fun run you have ever taken part in.

“We are hoping to raise much needed funds for our hospice from this event.”

Registration for runners costs £15 for adults and £10 for children, which includes a pair of neon sunglasses for every runner.

All sponsorship money will go towards the hospice.
