Join hospice for messy madness fun run

A hospice team is inviting the public to snap up the last remaining tickets to its foam, gunge and paint-filled fun run.

The St Richard’s Hospice Messy Madness 5K will take place on Saturday, July 27 at Churchfields Farm, near Droitwich.

The event had been scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 15 – but organisers were forced to postpone it due to rain causing the ground to become waterlogged.

Kelly Johns, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We were disappointed to postpone the event last month – but are now even more excited to break out the powder paint and gunge and have a fantastic time.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone to what we know will be a spectacular day of fundraising in support of the free care we provide to patients and their loved ones.

“A big ‘thank you’ must go to our venue, suppliers, sponsors and participants for their patience and support throughout.”

The 5K route can be run or walked, with the hospice recommending a minimum age of five to take part.

On the day, there will be a DJ providing live entertainment, as well as an event village with family activities and the chance to visit the on-site maize maze.

Everyone taking part will get a Messy Madness t-shirt to wear on the day, a medal and Churchfields ice cream.

Peter Reeves, General Manager at event sponsors Majestic Bingo, said: “It has been a pleasure to be the main sponsor.

“It is a charity close to our hearts and many customers within the local bingo community, and it is an absolute pleasure to be supporting this event for the second year running.

“We look forward to meeting all participants and the St Richard’s Hospice team to enjoy what will be a very messy event!”

Tickets are £20 for adults and £15 for children aged 16 and under. To book tickets for Messy Madness, visit www.strichards.org.uk/messy-madness
