Hospice to hold bubbly fun run

By Ellen Grindley in Environment

NEWNHAM Park will be popping with excitement when the Bubble Rush, a five-kilometre fun run in aid of Children’s Hospice South West, takes place there this summer.

The Bubble Rush is a sponsored fun run around Newnham Park through different coloured ‘bubble stations’ along the way, making for a very colourful and fun-filled run to help raise funds for the children’s ­charity.

Bubble Rush is coming to Newnham Park on Saturday, June 3, and CHSW is offering an early bird discount of 20 per cent to the first 500 people who sign up.

The whole family can take part in the event, there are no age restrictions, however buggies and wheelchairs are not permitted as there is some uneven ground along the course.

Kiley Tellam, events fundraiser for CHSW said: ‘We are really excited to be able to bring such a fun event to Plymouth for people to get involved in and all to help raise funds for the vital care and support we offer local children and families.

CHSW supports life-limited children and families across the south west with its three children’s hospices.

Families can have short stays at the hospices as well as respite, emergency stays and CHSW also offers end of life care and bereavement support.

The charity runs the only children’s hospices in the area, which are a lifeline to families that are facing truly unimaginable circumstances.
