Colour Can­ter to re­turn

South Canterbury Herald - - MOTORING - KOREN ALL­PRESS

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of its in­au­gu­ral run last year, the Friends of St Joseph’s School Te­muka will host a sec­ond Te­muka Colour Can­ter this month.

En­trants will have the chance to walk or run around a track, which starts at the Te­muka Do­main, and be doused with colour dur­ing the fundraiser for the school.

Par­ent com­mit­tee mem­ber Rose Rooney said many peo­ple were not aware of one of the walk­ing tracks at the Do­main, a space she de­scribed as ‘‘fan­tas­tic’’.

‘‘(It’s) A re­ally beau­ti­ful track that doesn’t get utilised.’’

Rooney said last year the event had raised about $10,000 for the school. This year money raised would go to­wards an ameni­ties block be­ing built at the school.

Rooney said there were seven colour sta­tions spread out along the nearly 5 kilo- me­tre track. ‘‘By the end you should be look­ing like a bit of a rain­bow.’’

At the end of the Can­ter, a lo­cal band will per­form and peo­ple were in­vited to bring a pic­nic and en­joy the evening.

The Colour Can­ter will take place at the Te­muka Do­main from 3pm on Oc­to­ber, 28. Cost $10 chil­dren, $20 adult.

Regis­tra­tions close on Friday, Oc­to­ber 20 and can be made through temuka­colour­can­ter.co.nz
