Fun loving staff at Rowley Hall Hospital were a sea of colour after raising £130 for Stafford’s Katharine House Hospice.

Employees were joined by friends and family members at the Splatter Dash event which took place on Stafford Common.

The team included Radiology Manager Alison Jarvie, Business administrator Sharron McCann and Radiographer Mandy Halsall.

They were joined by Mandy’s daughter Freya and Sharron’s daughters Melissa and Katie.

Splatter Dash is a three kilometre obstacle course and participants get splattered with different coloured paint before, during and after the event.

The event is not a race and gives runners of all ages and abilities the opportunity to get together, have lots of fun and support Katharine House Hospice at the same time.

Katharine House provides a free range of services offering help, care and support for people with advanced life-limiting conditions across mid-Staffordshire.

These conditions include Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, End Stage Renal failure and Cancer.

Alison Jarvie, Radiology Manager at Rowley Hall Hospital, said:

“Splatter Dash was a fantastic event and we had so much fun raising money for a very worthy cause.

“Everyone entered into the spirit of the event and it was very colourful! I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored us and came along to support us on the day.

“We are pleased to support a wonderful local hospice and plan to get involved with many more fundraising activities in the future.”
