Sponsoring a colourful fundraising occasion for Eden Valley Hospice

Pioneer Foodstore | Eden Valley Hospice | Jigsaw | Carlisle, Cumbria

Once again, we are thrilled to announce that we are sponsoring a colourful fundraising event; Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw’s Colour Run.

The fun run takes part on Sunday 13th May at Carlisle Racecourse and is attended by hundreds of runners, families and even dogs! The run sees participants covered in paint and foam bubbles to turn this event into a spectacular rainbow of colour.

Last year, the Colour Run raised over £60,000 for the hospice which looks after those suffering with life-limiting illnesses. Our much-missed colleague, Brian Queen, was well looked after by hospice staff, so this local charity has a special part to play in our hearts.

We had a fantastic team of runners take part in last year’s event and we were proud to have raised a grand total of £527 (£622 with gift aid) for this worthy cause. This year we aim to raise more.

We’ll be setting up a justgiving page, so look out for further details if you would like to donate in memory of Brian.
