KTIB join over 500 people in Colour Dash!

Six members of our staff took part in the much talked about ‘Colour Dash’ that was organised to raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) Nook Appeal, a new hospice for children and young people in the heart of Norfolk.

Our "Colour Dash" colleagues ran, jogged and walked 5km around Norwich’s Eaton Park, wearing white T-shirts, which were then covered in powdered paint by ‘Paint Pirates’ as they made their way around the park and together they raised £295.

A ‘paint party’ was held at the end of the event which involved throwing a cup of the paint in the air, creating a colourful cloud of colours!

Jon Titlow, Director at KTIB, said: "It was great fun and so good to see so many people of all running capabilities having fun and taking part to raise money for such a good cause."

He added: "The rain didn’t seem to put anyone off, in-fact it helped adhere the paint - ensuring everyone was covered from head to toe!"

The Eaton Park Colour Dash raised an amazing £10,000 in total and EACH have three more events taking place in Ipswich, Essex and Bury St Edmunds.
