Families can enjoy getting covered in paint in aid of a Wraxall hospice.

Rainbow Run Bristol will take place at a new venue this year to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

It is the seventh year of the charity’s flagship event which will be held in the beautiful surroundings of Blaise Castle in Bristol on June 2.

People aged five and over can walk or run through paint explosions in aid of the cause.

Hollie Thorogood, events fundraiser at CHSW said: “It costs around £3 million to run Charlton Farm and your sponsorship will help to bring smiles and happiness to our hospices.”

Thousands of people take part in the fun run and last year’s event raised more than £79,000 for the charity.

CHSW provides care and support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families. To sign up for the event, visit
