Saturday 6th July will see the beach at West Park will burst into colour as Family Nursing & Home Care host the Colour Festival 2019.

Building on their annual Colour Run, this year FNHC are delighted to bring you the Colour Festival. In addition to the ever popular 5km Colour Run, Islanders can look forward to a family workshop with Jersey Sandman, live music and stalls and a Tug of War competition.

The Colour Run is a five-kilometre, fun run the starts at the West Park Slip. Runners pass through five different Colour Stations along the course where they are doused from head to toe in a different coloured powder paint (this is eco-friendly and and non-toxic and is approved by Plastic free Jersey). Participants wear a complimentary white t-shirt at the starting line and finish the race plastered in colour. The event culminates in a “Paint the Sky” Where everyone involved throws coloured paint into the air the creating a colourful spectacular.

The Colour Run is such an important event for Family Nursing & Home Care.  All funds raised from this colourful family fun event are used to secure the employment of a Paediatric Palliative Care Worker.

Jersey has an increasing number of children suffering from chronic and acute conditions, requiring long term or intensive care.  By extending the Community Paediatric Service in this way we have be able to reduce the stresses imposed on families caring for a child, therefore families can maintain an independence lifestyle for as long as possible.
