What's going on at Oliver & Co

We’re sponsoring the Hospice of the Good Shepherd’s Foamtastic ColourBlast!

Posted on July 17th 2018

We are proud to be the official sponsors of the exciting event taking place September 30th 2018 at Chester Racecourse.

As well as sponsoring the event, some members of our team were very lucky to sample the powder paint and get a glimpse of what the day itself may be like earlier this month – as reported in the Chester Chronicle here. Continue reading this article to learn all about the Hospice, the event, and how you can take part.

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd:

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd has been around since the 1980s (it was officially opened by Princess Diana in 1989), and provides palliative care for people living in Cheshire West, Chester, and Deeside. They provide services free-of-charge to patients and families who are facing life-limiting illnesses. They provide a number of services, including:

  • out-patient
  • in-patient
  • day therapy
  • bereavement support

Only a third of the £4 million annual cost to run the Hospice is provided by the government fund. All other money is generated by the Hospice itself through fundraising, donations, events and corporate partnerships.

Fundraising and the tickets sold for the Foamtastic ColourBlast will help the Hospice to raise this much-needed money.

Foamtastic ColourBlast – what is it and how can you take part?

We are sponsoring the Foamtastic Colourblast – an amazing event taking place on September 30th 2018, at Chester Racecourse.

This is not your average fun run. As you run around the 3km track, you will be covered in a kaleidoscope of colours and foam. Powder paint will be thrown from individual colour stations, covering you from head to toe, and you will be blasted with foamy bubbles in the foam pits.

Participants can run on their own, as a family, or with friends and colleagues. You can run to support the hospice, or in memory of someone who has brought colour into your life. Importantly, the route is child-friendly.

Supporting the Hospice:

Back in June, members of our team were happy to raise around £250 for the Hospice by taking part in their sponsored Night Walk. Click here to read about their experience at the event.
