Hundreds of families from across Greater Manchester had a very bubbly time on Saturday, as they gathered in Wythenshawe Park for our latest fundraising event.
Our very first Bubble Rush run went with a pop, as participants took on a 5km course, complete with bubble stations pumping out masses of multi-coloured foam.
We’re hoping the sponsored event has raised lots of money for the local patients and families we care for.
Participants each received a special medal on the day, with everyone over the age of three also receiving a t-shirt for completing the course.
It’s fantastic to see people from our local communities across Greater Manchester all coming together and having fun at an event like the Bubble Rush. People of every age took part, getting messy and having a great time in aid of our patients. As a charity that needs to fundraise £20,000 a day so we can carry on providing specialist care to our patients and their loved ones, we rely on the kind support and generosity of local people. We’re always amazed by the unceasing passion for St Ann’s that people across Greater Manchester show us, and seeing everyone gathered together at the weekend raising money was one of those occasions. Huge thanks to everyone who took part. We hope you had a great time, and we can’t wait to see how much everyone has raised in sponsorship. Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive
