The Dandara Colour Run
Saturday 17th June 2017
The Dandara Colour Run in aid of Family Nursing & Home Care took place along St Aubin’s Bay on Saturday 17th June. Hundreds of people were showered with coloured paint as they make their way along a five-kilometre stretch of the beach.
The paint, which is made of biodegradable corn starch and comes in five colours, was thrown from colour stations along the route. Each colour was sponsored by local organisations; the headline sponsor was Dandara and the other sponsors were: BNP Paribas, Enhance Group, Hawksford and UBS.
FNHC’s Fundraising Manager, Ivo Le Maistre Smith, urged Islanders to register quickly to avoid disappointment.
‘This was the second year of the Dandara Colour Run and last year we sold out with over a month until the event. We had a lot of disappointed people contacting us right up to the event wanting any cancellation spaces!
‘I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our headline sponsor, Dandara, and our colour sponsors BNP Paribas, Enhance Group, Hawksford and UBS as without their help the event wouldn’t be possible. It was a fantastic community event and one that is unique in Jersey. The focus is entirely on people having fun and raising money to help FNHC provide community nursing in Jersey.’
All proceeds from the run will go towards the funding of FNHC’s frontline services. FNHC touches the lives of more Islanders than any other charity, helping children, their families, the sick, the elderly and the dying.
In addition to the entry fee, participants were encouraged to raise money for the charity through sponsorships from friends, family and colleagues.
