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.
