HIMLEY Hall and Park will be hosting a charity colour run next month to raise funds for the Neonatal Unit at Russells Hall Hospital.

The 5k Neon Dash event will take place on Sunday June 9.

Members of the public are invited to take part in the event along with staff from The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust and their family and friends.

DK Running Club is coordinating the race and David Lloyd Leisure will be leading the warm up.

There will also be stalls, a bouncy castle, face painting, a barista van, gourmet burgers and various charity stands.

Registration starts at 9.30am and a powder blast at 11am will signal the start of the run.

Anyone unable to attend event but wishing to contribute to the campaign can make a donation online at justgiving.com/campaign/NeonForNeonatal.

Karen Phillips, fundraising manager for the Trust, said: “We want to encourage everyone to come along cheer on the rainbow racers as they are splattered with neon powder for this fantastic good cause."
