There is just a month to go until Southend Bubble Rush, and fundraisers at Havens Hospices are hoping that families from Southend and the surrounding areas will sign up for the foam-filled family fun run which will take place at Garon Park on Saturday 7th September.
Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference: It starts in a sea of foam, and along the course are four bubble stations pumping out masses of coloured bubbles. It’s not a race, the event isn’t timed and there’s no pressure to run. The two-lap course at Garon Park is pushchair and wheelchair-friendly, so everyone in the family can take part.
Havens Hospices are asking families and friends to get sponsored or make a donation to show their support for the work of the charity.
Havens Hospices are fundraising for a new adult hospice to continue providing care and support to individuals with a life-limiting illness, and their families. The new Fair Havens Hospice, which will cover the population of Southend, Castle Point and Rochford, is set to open in Spring 2020 will bring together a range of specialist services to support people in making choices about their care from the day they receive their diagnosis, as they journey with their illness, and as the end of their life approaches.
Judy Grocott, Events Manager at Havens Hospices said
“We’re really excited for Bubble Rush, it is set to be a fantastic day full of fun for all the family. We now only have £350,000 left to raise to complete the new hospice. So, every person who joins us at Bubble Rush and raises money for us will be making a huge difference for those who need us across South East Essex now and in the future.”
