Norwich is set to be awash with bubbles as a charity fundraiser brings foam to the city.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) are hosting Bubble Rush, a 5k fun run with a difference, on Saturday, May 5.

Taking place in Earlham Park, participants will head off amongst a sea of bubbles, before passing four bubble stations, where cannons will pump out coloured foam to create a four-foot deep bubble bath.

Two runs will be organised, with the first at 11am and the second at noon.

Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: “This new event is sure to be a spectacular sight and lots of fun for all involved - we can’t wait!

“There’s no race element so participants are welcome to run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. It’s a completely natural and safe mixture.”

Sponsored by Bateman Groundworks, the event costs £25 for adults and £10 for children (4-15).

All funds raised will go towards The nook appeal, a campaign to raise £10m to build a new hospice in Framlingham Earl.
