Runners go through coloured foam on 5k course

FOAMY fun in Dartford’s Central Park raised cash for a children’s charity on Sunday.

Around 800 people took part in Demelza Hospice Care for Children’s bubble rush - Kent’s first - a five-kilometre run through walls of coloured foam.

The race is thought to have raised £20,000 for the charity, which cares for and supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families. Dartford Mayor Ian Armitt was among the entrants.

Events manager Emma Middleton said: “The run was a huge success. We had so much fantastic feedback from everyone.

“We are overwhelmed with how much money has been raised. We cannot say thank you enough to all those who took part – everyone really got into the bubble spirit.”
