The Specsavers team in Accrington have painted the town red…and green, and blue, and yellow all in aid of Pendleside Hospice.

Raising funds for local hospice

Louise Sessions, Melanie Warren, Claire Currey and their families took part the fun-packed 5k Burnley Colour Dash and raised a fantastic £200 for the hospice.

The annual event sees hundreds of locals run, jog or walk through Towneley Park while being covered in different coloured paint at 'Colour Blast Stations'.

These colours do run

Accrington store manager Melanie Warren said: ‘The colour dash is an absolutely fantastic event and a wonderfully fun day for the whole family. We’re thrilled to have been able to raise £200 between us for such an amazing and invaluable local cause.’
