This year’s British Ironwork Centre Colour Run event at the British Ironwork Centre raised a huge £18,750 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Clive Knowles, chair of the British Ironwork Centre, says, “This is definitely the area’s most eccentric event! Seeing the families and kids literally get blasted in paint is pretty amazing and knowing that they’re all here to help push cancer back is unbelievably uplifting.
“Through the funding raised at this year’s Colour Run, Macmillan are now covered for 670 hours of highly important work. Thinking about it in those terms makes all the stress of planning and organising a truly worthwhile experience.”
