Thanks to our runners and walkers who took part in the Go Bright for Sight Colour Run at Churchfields Farm, Droitwich Spa on Sunday 1st of July 2018. It was a really great day as participants had lots of fun with Julie Liggins doing the warm up  and the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Bill Moy spraying the crowd with an orange colour fountain. Our brightly coloured paint stations were Red, Blue, Green and Purple courtesy of our sponsors Southco, Fortis Living, Modus and Harrison Clark Rickerbys. Thanks to our amazing volunteers and marshals from Droitwich Athletic Club, Droitwich Young Firefighters, Droitwich Lions and Droitwich Rotary.

Zoe took part and said “An absolutely fantastic family event. Amazing atmosphere, superb venue, brilliantly organised and all for a very worthwhile cause.” 

 Eric our new volunteer intern said ” It was a great experience for me to be present at such an event for the first time and I think anyone who couldn’t make it missed the opportunity to cover their friends and family with paint! Although my family are miles away from England, I wish they had taken part!”.

Gillian Kerton  from Churchfields says, “My family has been farming this land for five generations and we’ve always believed that community spirit is important.  We were thrilled to host such a happy and memorable event bringing friends and families together to have fun and raises funds for a special local charity”. 

Physique Fitness, Bootcamp Droitwich and Julie Liggins Fitness have been actively supporting the Go Bright for Sight Colour Run for the last few years. Steve Sherry from Bootcamp Droitwich says “It’s become an important part of our fitness calendar.  This year we brought along over 150 runners. We organise the 5K Farm Fitness on Saturday morning at Churchfields which is proving to be popular, so holding the Colour Run there too was a perfect fit.” Matt  Lingard from Physique Fitness said that “it’s important that local businesses work together and help local charities.”

Thank you to our Sponsors and Event Partners.
