FUN-LOVING fund-raisers will have the chance to enjoy a day of bubbles, foam, gunge and fantastic colours at the first 80s Messy Madness event this summer.

The frothy family event on August 4 will raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice, helping the charity care for patients and their loved ones in the county.

Participants are urged to dress up in the brightest and boldest 80s outfits to walk, skip, dance or run around the 5km course at Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream site in Salwarpe, near Droitwich.

Participants will set off in two waves, the first at 10am for families and young children aged five and above, and the second at 11am for adults and children aged over 12.

On finishing the run participants will each receive a medal and a Churchfields ice cream.

A DJ will be provide classic 80s entertainment and there will be additional family activities along with the opportunity to participate in the maize maze at a discounted price.

The hospice is going back to its roots having started in Droitwich in the 1980s and recreating the spirit of the decade on the day.

Fund-raiser Kelly Johns said: “We had hundreds of people join our previous Rainbow Runs and Superhero events and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to another fantastic, colourful and fun-filled day – this time with a new 80s twist.”

There is a special early bird rate of £20 for adults and £15 for children for a limited time.

Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship for St Richard’s which offers its services for free.
