Starting off dressed in white, participants can run, jog, walk or dance their way through the Paint Stations! By the time they reach the finish line everyone will be covered in paint and smiles, having raised money for local sight loss charity Sight Concern Worcestershire.

Fiona Blake, Fundraising Manager for the charity says, ?It?s such a happy and memorable event that brings the whole community together - friends and families - to have fun and raise funds for a special local charity?

She added, ?We?re thrilled to have have some very generous supporters painting the people of Droitwich red, blue, green and purple as they pass through our Paint Stations en route, including Fortis Living, AKW, Modus and, for the first time, Estate Agents Nicole and Co?. She added, ? We?re also grateful to Julie Liggins Fitness who will once again get the crowd dancing and to an amazing team of 100 people from personal trainer Steve Sherry Bootcamp, Physique Fitness and Julie Liggins Fitness. They?ve had great fun testing the paint out for us!

Jon Powell, Sales Manager at Nicol and Co said ?We are delighted to be involved in such a vibrant and fun event in the heart of our home town. Supporting local events and charities has always been of huge importance to us and supporting the colour run allows us to both. We are really looking forward to painting everyone purple.?

Jenny Gage, Chief Officer of the charity, says, ?The Go Bright for Sight Colour Run is open to all ages ? walkers and runners ? and is accessible to all. Last year over 400 people took part in Droitwich and the charity raised over £6,000. We are thrilled to have marshalling support from Droitwich Young Firefighters, Droitwich Athletics Club and Droitwich Lions.? She added, ?Anyone with a visual impairment will be particularly welcome. Sight Concern will be recruiting sighted guides to enable people with sight loss to participate, and be an active part of their local community. Money raised enables us to offer advice, information, support, skills training and social and leisure activities?.

Entry fees, which include the cost of the Paint Stations, entertainment and a pair of neon sunglasses, are £13 adults, £7.50 children (age three and under free), students £8.50. A family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) is £33. Tickets must be booked in advance. The entry fee helps towards the cost of putting on the event. We are asking participants to raise as much money as possible to help our work, supporting local blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
