The countdown has begun to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) King’s Lynn Colour Dash and organisers calling for any willing volunteers to help on the day.

The sell-out Colour Dash will be held on Sunday, September 4, in The Walks. Colour dashes are the newest craze to hit the UK and see participants race around a 5km course as they are showered with clouds of coloured powder – creating truly impressive multi-coloured results!

Event organisers are asking anyone who doesn’t feel energetic enough to take part but would still like to be involved in the colourful fun to consider volunteering on the day.

The charity is on the look out for marshals, volunteers to man the registration desk and people to help out at water stations.

Emma Taylor, EACH Norfolk Community Fundraiser, said: “We’re all really excited to be hosting our first Colour Dash in King’s Lynn. Tickets have sold out so we’ll have 1,000 runners – it promises to be a great day!

“We’re on the look out for marshals for the event, to be dotted around the course, cheering on our runners and steering them in the right direction as well as people to help out with a few other jobs on the day.

“We also still have spaces for our paint pirates, so if you’d like to cover runners in powered paint this could be the job for you!

“The event is so colourful and great to watch, the atmosphere on the day makes it so worth while to be involved in – so if you’re interested in finding out more we’d love to hear from you.”

EACH cares for children with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk and supports their families. For families using their services the charity is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. All funds raised at the event will go towards providing these vital services to local families.

Colour Pirate places are available at £10 per person.

To offer your support as a volunteer on the day or to book in as a Paint Pirate please contact the EACH Norfolk Fundraising Team on 01953 666767 or email
