Last year, Saint Francis Hospice in Broxhill Road teamed up with three East London hospices to host its first ever 5km Bubble Rush which saw 1,000 people come together to join in the fun.

Following on from the event, families and friends are invited to sign up and be at the Queen’s Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford on Sunday, June 10.

All money raised will be shared between the four charities, Saint Francis Hospice, Haven House, St. Joseph’s and Richard House.

Juliette Whittaker, events manager at Saint Francis Hospice said: “You don’t have to be fit but you do need to be prepared to get messy and have fun.

“And best of all, you’ll be rewarded with a medal for your efforts, leave with a big smile and know you’ve helped make a difference to people and families at the most difficult time in their lives.”

The event runs from 11am to 4pm and prices start at £12 for children and £15 for adults.
