With just days left until Weston Hospicecare’s first-ever Bubble Rush 5K, which is set to take place on Saturday, 5 August in Apex Park, the Burnham-on-Sea welcome sign on the B3140 got a little makeover.
Together with members of the Weston Hospicecare fundraising team, Mayor Bill Hancock and his wife, Mayoress Frances Hancock, posed in front of the newly decorated sign welcoming people to Bubble-on-Sea.
‘We’re really pleased to host an event in Burnham-on-Sea, as our clinical team does a lot of work to support dozens of patients and even more family members in the area,’ said Kelsey Dehaney, event coordinator at Weston Hospicecare. ‘We hope lots of people will come out to support the hospice by taking part and raising sponsorship with the Bubble Rush!’
The team at Weston Hospicecare approached the councillors of Burnham with the idea, and the Mayor was happy to get involved.
‘From personal experience, I know how important the care and support that hospices provide is,’ said Mayor Bill Hancock. ‘The work that the hospice does is marvellous, and we’re pleased to support their efforts however we can.’
Although online registrations for the event have now closed, those interested in coming along to the Bubble Rush are encouraged to call 01934 423 960 to sign up. Alternatively, there will be spots available for those who wish to sign up on the day.
‘The Bubble Rush is a fun 5K walk, run or toddle through four different coloured Bubble Stations,’ said Kelsey. ‘With the weather set to be nice for the weekend, we’re sure participants will have a brilliant time — all while helping to support a great cause!’
