A LOCAL family is joining forces to raise funds for charity.

Kerry Griffith, her husband Andrew and twin girls Holly and Chloe will be involved in the Nightingale House Hospice Colour Run next month.

They will be doing it in memory Kerry's mum Barbara Linsell from Leeswood, who was looked after at the hospice.

Kerry Said: “We are all so looking forward to taking part. The girls are really excited; they cannot wait to get covered in paint and have been looking forward to it all summer! Nightingale House did a fantastic job of looking after my mum and as a family we would like to give something back.”

The event will be held on September 1 at Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse.

Sam Amis, Nightingale House Fundraiser added: “We are fortunate that families like Kerry’s take part in our events to remember their loved ones. The Colour Run is our second biggest event with every penny raised directly helping people who need specialist palliative care and support.

“We are also delighted DTCC and Hoya are sponsoring this year’s popular event. It’s a great for families and I’m not sure who enjoys this event more the children or the adults! It’s not about fitness; it’s about taking part and raising vital income for the hospice.

“The Colour Run is a perfect opportunity for family and friends to come together and get involved in a fun and celebratory atmosphere.”

Participants can walk, jog or run their way through a 4km explosion of coloured powder paint to raise money.

To register for the event it costs £15 which will include sunglasses and a medal. Children between the ages of five and 12 go free.

Tickets are available to purchase until Monday, August 26. Tickets can then be purchased on the day but will cost £25 per person and spaces are limited.
