But the first ever Bubble Rush in King’s Lynn brought a wider smile to the faces of fundraisers than most - as it is expected to bring in more than £30,000 to help fund a children’s hospice.

The event, in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), was the first of its kind in King’s Lynn and brought 1,000 people to The Walks to take part.

With the chance to run through red, white, yellow and blue bubbles, the event on Saturday, June 16 was a fun occasion for the whole family.

And with £28,000 of sponsorship money already in and thousands more expected, it has a serious message.

EACH fundraiser Emma Benstead said: “It’s an event the whole family can take part in.

The money raised will go towards EACH’s general fund at its Quidenham hospice, ahead of its move to Framingham Earl in the near future.
