A fun packed 'Rainbow Run' created a cloud of crazy colours as more than 100 people (and the occasional four legged friend) enjoyed the dazzling event to raise funds for Peace Hospice Care.

Soaking up the sun and the fun, numerous families  embraced the event on Sunday May 18th, all  eager pull on their stylish bright shades and  be  sprinkled with the rainbow dust.

This multi coloured spectacle that took place at the Furzefield Centre,  was the first ever of its kind  in Potters Bar. Due to its success and smile factor, it looks likely to be a regular fundraiser for the Hospice.

Community Fundraising Manager at Peace Hospice Care, Allison Tromans-Nunes  said, " The Rainbow Run was not a race but just a great fun event for the whole family to enjoy.   

'We were delighted to see so many people taking part and raising funds to support our services. We anticipate that this event raised more than £2,500 for the Hospice.

Rob Dodkin at Hertsmere Leisure was delighted by the day. 'If you missed it, you missed out,' he commented.  'We will hopefully be doing another Rainbow Run in the near future.'

Thanks to all the volunteers for helping out. To John Amar for the children's fairground and refreshments, and to the additional support from Watford Girls and to Regiment Fitness for their pre-run warm up.
