INTERVIEW: How to sign up for St John's Hospice Colour Dash on Morecambe Promenade

The St John's Hospice Colour Dash returns to Morecambe next month

The Colour Dash for St John's Hospice is just weeks away and organisers are looking to recruit more people to sign up for multi-coloured fun!

The event takes place on Sunday September 24 along a 5km route on Morecambe Promenade.

Last year hundreds took part in the family event where people get plastered with powdered paint as they make their way along the course.

"There's no better location than Morecambe Promenade with the views and hopefully we'll get a day when the sun is shining," said Lisa Morgan from St John's Hospice.

"It's absolutely amazing fun and it's all for the family. Participants from the age of four to 104 can come and take part, It's not a race or a run. If you want to walk it that's fine.

"It's an array of colour, you get covered in paint and have an amazing fun time."

If you would like to take part in the Colour Dash or sponsor the event, contact St John's Hospice.

The hospice has other fundraising events coming up soon, including an evening of comedy with Jon Richardson at the Winter Gardens on August 27 (sold out) and their Woofs and Wellies dog walk with a difference at Low Sizergh Barn in Kendal on September 3. 

This includes a stroll through the beautiful grounds of Low Sizergh Barn with a doggie photoshoot, a goodie bag for your pooch, a fancy dress competition, doggy bandanas for sale, and not forgetting the chance for your dog to be name the most attractive of all!

Sign up here. 

The hospice, based on Slyne Road in Lancaster, provides palliative care for members of the community in North Lancashire and South Cumbria.
