Sunshine and bubbles made for the perfect day out when families, friends and colleagues gathered together for a foam-tastic experience.

The East London Bubble Rush, organised by Saint Francis Hospice, Broxhill Road, Havering-atte-Bower, alongside Haven House, St Joseph’s Hospice and Richard House, was once again held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford on Sunday, June 10.

The 5k route was taken on by around 1,200 runners and all money raised from the day will be shared between the four hospices.

Event manager at the hospice Juliette Whittaker said: “What an amazing day, the sun shone for us and the event had such a fun, family atmosphere.

“The adults enjoyed it as much as the children!

“Thank you to everyone who came along to enjoy the Bubbles and to all the volunteers who helped.”
