Urenco sponsor Colour Fun Run 2016

Capenhurst based business Urenco have agreed to support local Hospice of the Good Shepherd in a number of their fundraising and events activities over the next few months.
The company that operates all over the world are market leaders in uranium enriched services, enabling their customer to produce low carbon nuclear energy that is an important part of the world energy mix.

Urenco will be official sponsors of this year’s Hospice 5k Colour Fun Run from Willaston to Neston taking place on Sunday 3rd July. In addition to a financial contribution the company will also enter some of their employees to the event and be doused from head to toe in organic paint.
This is the third year the Hospice have organised a Colour Fun Run which is a popular event that attracts families, corporates, race enthusiasts to individuals that just want to add some colour to their weekend!

Those wishing to enter are urged to book in April where they will benefit from an Early Bird offer, reducing individual’s entry fees to £15.00 and Groups of 4 paying just £50.00! All participants will also receive a free t-shirt.

The Colour Fun Run is not your monotonous plod from one location to another or, even more damningly, in place on a treadmill, but instead a chance to take part in an un-timed, non-competitive carefree event which includes a great deal of laughter, plenty of music and lots and lots of colour.
Entrants will be doused from head to toe with organic coloured paint by volunteers and on-lookers at regular intervals along the route. The starch, which is non-toxic and non-irritating, adheres to clothing and exposed skin creating the perfect tie-dye look!

Abi Smith, Corporate Fundraising Manger at the Hospice added, “We’re delighted to be working with a company such as Urenco who have a great reputation for supporting local community events and I look forward to working with them now and in the future.”
