Runners getting ready to take on the Splatter Dash!

Last weekend saw the return of one of Katharine House Hospices most colourful and vibrant fundraising events – Splatter Dash!

Starting in their brightest whites, 300 participants, including local MP for Stafford Jeremy Lefroy, ran, skipped, crawled and danced their way through the messy 3km splatter gauntlet on Stafford Common, getting covered in all the colours of the rainbow as they passed through the splatter stations!

Events Fundraiser, Lisa Carson said

“The Splatter Dash was an absolutely fantastic occasion. The atmosphere was electric as hundreds of hospice supporters came together and embraced the colour! Thank you to all came along and took part in the event, to our army of volunteers who gave up their time to help the event run smoothly, and to Stan Robinson Ltd, Traction, Stone Radio, Paul Milgate-Scarrott, La Patisserie and the Staffordshire University Caterers for providing their services free of charge.”

This is their third year of running the event and once all of the sponsorship money is in, they are hoping to have raised a minimum of £10,000 that will go towards providing free care for people in our community who are suffering life-limiting illness.

Thank you’s to the headline sponsors, Castle Estates, to our fantastic volunteers who well and truly rose to the challenge and to all who helped make it a day full of fun!
