Get ready for bub­ble trou­ble

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

One of Ac­cord Hospice’s most pop­u­lar fundrais­ing events – the Bub­ble Rush – is back, and you can sign up now.

The event sees char­ity fundrais­ers dash through a sea of bub­bles over a course of no less than five kilo­me­tres.

It starts in a sea of bub­bles and fea­tures four bub­ble sta­tions along the route, with can­nons pump­ing out coloured foam to keep the fun go­ing.

The em­pha­sis is on fun and the course is fam­ily friendly, mean­ing peo­ple can run, jog, walk, dance or tod­dle through the foam.

Pushchairs and wheel­chairs are more than wel­come too. Ac­cord says the event is not timed so no one is rac­ing any­one.

The char­ity adds that the most im­por­tant thing is that par­tic­i­pants en­joy their time in the bub­bles and fin­ish with a big smile on their faces.

Bub­blers do it for fun with friends and chil­dren and ev­ery­one gets a medal at the end.

Over the last two years the Bub­ble Rush has helped to raise more than £50,000 for Ac­cord Hospice and 1,000 peo­ple have taken part.

Ken Mathie, Ac­cord’s fundrais­ing man­ager, said the event is one of its big­gest of the year.

He said:“It has al­ways been very suc­cess­ful for us,”he said. And it’s all about fam­ily fun.

“There are no age re­stric­tions, all are wel­come.” The event is or­gan­ised by Glas­gow’s Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice for Scot­tish Hos­pices and takes place at Bel­la­hous­ton Park, Glas­gow, on Sun­day, May 5.

Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at www. prince­and­princes­sofwaleshos­pice.org.uk or by call­ing 0141 429 5599.
