MULTICOLOURED wigs and fluorescent garlands greeted runners taking part in the charity Colour Run in Seaton Carew.
The annual Alice House Hospice event saw hundreds of participants completing the 5km course along the sea front in Hill Care Group sponsored t-shirts.
Staff from two of the group’s homes were dressed in colourful accessories for the occasion – as they lent support on the water station, t-shirt and merchandise stalls.
Hill Care’s Queens Meadow Care Home, in Hartlepool, and Bannatyne Lodge Care Home, in Peterlee, were both represented at the event.
Alice House Hospice cares for those with life limiting illnesses and their loved ones in Hartlepool and East Durham.
Julie Armstrong, home manager at Queens Meadow Care Home, said: “Alice House Hospice provides an amazing and vital service for those in our local community.
“This is our second fundraiser of the year for the charity, having sold cuddly toys to raise funds earlier in the year, and we will continue to do everything we can to support such a worthy cause.”
