Scotland’s hospices join for a bubble-tastic family fun day


The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is one of 11 hospices from all over Scotland coming together on Sunday 14 August to offer supporters a family fun day out in a park full of bubbles.

Bubble Rush is coming to Queen’s Park in Glasgow and is suitable for all ages and abilities, following a 5K course filled with masses and masses of bubbles. What could be a more entertaining way to spend the day?

The course is not timed so take as long as you like to complete the challenge - run, walk or jog through the frothing bubbles to get to the finish line.

Along the route, high-powered bubble stations will shoot out coloured foam, blowing a massive 30 cubic metres a minute of froth. All you need to do is dive in …Bubble runners are invited to dress up for the occasion: wear tutus, sunglasses, wigs and wings. Just remember to have lots of fun as you go!

“Bubble Rush is such a fun day out. Everyone gets covered in colourful bubbles, it’s a real sight to see.” says Caroline Young, Head of Community Fundraising at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.

“It’s also a great way to help raise vital funds for your local hospice. Here at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, we need to raise £3million each year to be able to carry on delivering compassionate and much-needed care to people with life-limiting and terminal conditions.

“But you need to sign up soon if you want to take part. Spaces are going fast and the closing date for entry is Monday 1 August.”
