Ocean Mini Torbay has handed a new Mini Countryman to Rowcroft Hospice, and is proud to be supporting the hospice’s brand new event, The Colour Rush.
Ocean Mini Torbay hopes that by loaning the Mini Countryman, with its bold Colour Rush branding, will help to spread the word about this new event. The Mini will be loaned to Rowcroft until the end of September.
Louise Kasprowicz, brand manager, said: “Ocean Mini Torbay are proud to be in partnership with such an inspiring charity and delighted to support the Colour Rush event.”
The keys were handed over to Rowcroft’s fundraising team at the event’s official launch, held on 13th June at Splashdown, Goodrington. The Ocean Mini team got into the spirit of things by getting caked in powder paint which is a key component of the Colour Rush.
Jermaine Crewes from Ocean said: “I had an awesome time and strongly recommend that everyone gives their support for such a great cause and signs up as soon as they can. Just remember to close your mouth, because the paint doesn’t taste as good as it looks!”
The event, taking place on Saturday, September 7, is the first of its kind in Devon, already having become popular in Australia and the US. Participants will take part in a 5km run around Goodrington, Paignton which will see them covered in different coloured powder paints.
By taking part in the run, runners will also get access to the exclusive live Colour Rush after party at Youngs Park – a festival-style live music event with bands and acoustic acts performing across two stages. UK rock band We Are The Ocean have already been confirmed as the headliners.
Ric Yerbury, Rowcroft events manager said: “We’re delighted that Ocean Torbay has selected Rowcroft as its nominated charity. The loan of this car is such a great way for the hospice to promote the Colour Rush around South Devon. You can’t miss the bold design and splashes of paint.”
