Lowestoft’s first ever Colour Dash has raised over £10,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The event at Normanston Park was organised by EACH with the intention of raising money for a new purpose-built facility, The Nook, which will offer the very best in care and support for children suffering with life-threatening conditions.
Participants undertook a two-mile fun run whilst being showered with clouds of coloured powder paint, resulting in a dazzling and vibrant scene.
EACH fundraiser, Tal Williams, said: “We would like to thank the people of Lowestoft for giving us such a warm reception as this was our first Colour Dash event in the town.
“It was great to have over 500 people taking part, the weather was good and everyone had smiles on their faces.
“The money raised will help us to continue providing care to children and young people with life-threatening conditions and their families.”
