Staff at Richard House Children's Hospice get ready for the Rainbow Rush run

Richard House

A children’s hospice is hoping to raise funds with a multicoloured five-kilometre run around one of the borough’s parks.

Richard House’s Rainbow Rush is a yomp – or gentle stroll – for the kindhearted, with a day of fun and fundraising promised for all who attend.

It will take place on Saturday at noon in Beckton District Park North, and organisers have said it will be a “fantastic, full-of-colour day out for individuals and families alike”.

Registration costs £20 or £15 for groups of eight or more, and the minimum sponsorship is £50 for adults and £25 for under-16s (children aged 10 and under go free).

You could also become a paint thrower – hurling bundles of kaleidoscopic joy at runners – for £15.
