Over 1,500 people have been getting covered in powder paint to raise money for charity and to have fun in this years colour run.

The money raised will go tot he Jersey charity Family Nursing and Home Care to pay for a Paediatric Palliative Care Worker who supports children and families.

The main difference I can make to families is a constant supporting role. The nurses have a huge part to play but it's very much clinical and based around the needs of the child. Whereas my role is more about interacting with the family, as well as providing them with emotional and medical support

– Nicola Waggott, FNHC's Paediatric Palliative Care Worker

After three successful colour runs the charity is now extending the event into a festival for families to enjoy. There will be a sand castle family workshop, live music, a DJ, a variety of stalls, a tug-of-war race and finally the colour run.

We wanted to make this year's colour run bigger and better, which is why we've created the Colour Festival -a first for the Island and for the whole community. The various activities going on throughout the day will make it a family day out for islanders of all ages to enjoy, so you don't have to be participating in the colour run to attend the festival. We hope as many people come along and show their support whilst raising money for such an important cause.

– Mia Mistry, Fundraising Manager at Family Nursing & Home Care
