Specsavers stores sponsor Bubble Rush
Specsavers in Slough Queensmere is supporting the very first Bubble Rush 5k fun run in Berkshire, with kind-hearted staff also taking part to raise funds for Thames Hospice.
Slough Queensmere is supporting one of the green bubble stations, which will blast participants from head-to-toe with coloured foam.
The event is Thames Hospice’s first Bubble Rush, with all money going to the local charity to help those living with life-limiting illnesses in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
The family-friendly 5k run will be held at Windsor Racecourse on Sunday 10 September and will be open to everyone who wishes to walk, skip or run the entertaining course.
Slough is joining forces with the Windsor store to become a main sponsor of the event, with many members of the store’s staff joining the colourful challenge.
John Duminy, Specsavers Slough store director, said: ‘Thames Hospice is a wonderful charity within our community and we are proud to be sponsoring their first Bubble Rush fun run.
‘We wanted to go further than simply sponsoring the event so a number of our staff have also decided to take on the challenge of running the 5k.
‘The Specsavers ‘super team’ was formed to inspire locals to take part in the race whilst digging deep for a charitable cause which is extremely close to our hearts.
‘We cannot wait until the race – it is bound to be an eventful day.’
