Raising sponsorship
Sue Ryder – Duchess of Kent Hospice is the Colour Rush’s chosen charity so we would love for you to take part and pledge to raise money for the care they provide.

Please note 100%  of the registration fee covers the organiser’s cost of putting on the event. To raise money for Sue Ryder we’d love you to ask friends and family to sponsor you for taking part in the Fun Colour Rush 2018.

Duchess of Kent is there for people aged 18 and over living with conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease.  Their expert care team includes doctors, nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists, social workers, bereavement support workers and volunteer befrienders. Having your support will help to ensure patients and their families across Reading and the surrounding areas receive all the care and support they need to spend the time they have left in the way they choose.

“The staff at Duchess of Kent are just fantastic; they made my wife’s stay at the hospice warm, upbeat and comfortable. The care they gave my wife as well as myself and my family was brilliant.”

Sponsorship target £50 per entry. Please note sponsorship is not mandatory, every penny raised will make a real difference to the vital work Sue Ryder does within your community!

So get in touch with the Duchess of Kent fundraising team who can help with advice to pull on the purse-strings whilst you’re testing your hamstrings! / 0118 9550 434.
