Colourful fundraising challenge for Keynsham nursery team

Staff from a Keynsham nursery are putting on their running gear to help raise funds for Children’s Hospice South West. Snapdragons' Rainbow Run team

A team from Snapdragons will be taking part in the Rainbow Run on Sunday, May 19, on The Downs in Bristol – a 5k run that will see participants showered in brightly-coloured powdered paints.

Lizzy Farwell, a nursery nurse at Snapdragons, has a special connection to the charity as it was founded by her parents Eddie and Jill in 1991 to provide care for children with life-limiting illnesses.

Lizzy said: “The Children’s Hospice provides the very best in palliative care and provides support and comfort for these families and children who need it the most and helps make the most of short, but precious lives. CHSW is not about death, it’s about living and celebrating that.

“Myself and some of my colleagues are taking part in the UK’s first Rainbow Run, where we will help raise vital funds for CHSW and have great fun at the same time.”

CHSW now has three hospices in the South West in North Devon, near Bristol and in Cornwall. For more information on the Rainbow Run, visit
