Hav­ing fun in the froth

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

AMY Bur­ton is ex­pect­ing to work her­self into a lather at Bub­ble Rush 2016.

She is ex­cited about fin­ish­ing up cov­ered in foam dur­ing the 5km chal­lenge at Oul­ton Park Race Cir­cuit on Satur­day, May 14.

Amy is one of hun­dreds of par­tic­i­pants tack­ling 5ft walls of dif­fer­ent coloured bub­bles in this novel event or­gan­ised by East Cheshire Hospice and St Luke’s Hospice.

Gym and work col­leagues will be join­ing her on the route, all game for a laugh for a good cause.

Amy, who works for As­pire Hous­ing, said: “Un­for­tu­nately, I missed the dead­line to en­ter last year and it sounded great fun. I’ve done events where I’ve ended up cov­ered in mud so it’ll be nice get soaked in foam in­stead.

“Some of our group haven’t done this type of chal­lenge be­fore so it’ll be a nice way to ease them round the course, though there will be a lot of froth in­volved.

“We’re do­ing this for a great cause and re­alise just how much fundrais­ing means to the Hospice so it can con­tinue to pro­vide ex­cel­lent pa­tient care.”

Amy will be sup­ported on the day by hus­band James and five-year-old son Joshua.

There is no age limit to tak­ing part and the route is child friendly. En­try is £25 and £7.50 for chil­dren 14 and un­der.

There is live en­ter­tain­ment and a free Bub­ble Rush t-shirt and medal for ev­ery Bub­bler.
