Wightman & Parrish

St Wilfrid's Hospice Colour Run

The St Wilfrid's Hospice team welcomed the biggest crowd ever to this year's Rainbow Run last week.

More than 1,200 people passed through eight different coloured paint and foam stations in the fields at Nash Street Farm, near Hailsham. Of these runners, two were Wightman & Parrish employees! 

It was the fourth time the hospice has held the event, which uses non-toxic, biodegradable paint.
