Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) has teamed up with Thames Hospice to offer free use of its beautiful 400 acre-estate for the palliative and end-of-life care charity’s Bubble Rush.  The bubble-filled family fun run will take place on Saturday 15 September,  and teams from BCA and Thames Hospice are inviting you to join them on a 2.5k or 5k route.

Canons will blast you with coloured foam as you can walk, skip, run or even dance around the colourful course. Families are encouraged to take part and children will get the chance to meet mascot Finn the Bubble Fish. With free use of the College’s grounds, every penny raised through the Bubble Rush will help Thames Hospice provide local people with quality of life, until the end of life.

Alison Evans, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at Thames Hospice, said:We are really excited to be bringing the Bubble Rush back to Berkshire and can’t thank BCA enough for their generous support. Teams from BCA and Thames Hospice have signed up to take on the blizzard of bubbles, will you? It’s going to be incredi-bubble!”

Last year more than 900 bubblers took part and spaces are limited. Jennie Evans – HR Executive at BCA, said: “Thames Hospice is currently Berkshire College of Agriculture’s staff nominated ‘Charity of the Year’.  It is a charity close to our hearts, so we were delighted to be able to offer use of the College’s 400-acre estate for the Bubble Rush. 

“We hope many families and friends, as well as staff and students, come together on 15 September to enjoy the beautiful surroundings we have to offer at BCA. Whether you wish to run, walk, skip or hop around the course, please join us to raise vital funds for this fantastic cause!”

Everyone who enters receives a Bubble Rush T-shirt and medal. Plus, there will be a chance for you to buy merchandise including multi-coloured tutus, sunglasses and funky visors to add even more fun to your run. Registration costs £25 for adults and £10 for Children (5 – 15 years), plus under 4s go free (no medal or T-shirt provided).
