RGB sponsors charity dye run

RGB Building Supplies is supporting Children’s Hospice South West’s charity Rainbow Run by sponsoring its blue paint station.

Taking place on Saturday 9th June at Exeter’s Westpoint, 2,000 runners are expected to take part in the fundraising event and run, walk or jog their way around the 5k course, meeting various coloured paint stations along the way.

The event village will feature face painters, music and entertainment, and RGB will be hosting games .

Kevin Fenlon, CEO at RGB Building Supplies, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Children’s Hospice South West’s Rainbow Run and helping them to reach their target of raising £60,000 from the event. Good luck to all those taking part, we’re looking forward to turning them all blue!”

Children’s Hospice South West is RGB’s chosen charity and the builders merchant will be holding various fundraising events throughout the year. The money raised will help the charity continue to provide care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families from its three hospices in Devon, Somerset and Cornwall.
