Site-Street are proud to be one of the sponsors of The Colourthon. It’s an annual event organised by Southend Round Table for people to enjoy a fun walk throughout Southend, Leigh and surrounding areas including the seafront to raise money for a charity that’s close to your heart.
One of the best parts about this event is that every penny you raise for your charity goes to your charity. The event doesn’t take a penny from the donations – in fact, the donations are sent directly to the charity and not to Colourthon at all. The only thing to pay is the £22.50 registration fee which covers the cost of the t-shirt, medal and general organising of the event.
There’s a huge buzz around Chalkwell Park in the lead up to the 6pm start. The DJ playing music and requests, face painters, refreshments, warm-up exercises… it’s all there. And a number of charities will have stands there, too.
The Moonlight Colourthon is a half-marathon (just over 13 miles) and the Twilight Colourthon is 10km. Both start from the same place at the same time. The park is full of colour and excitement.
This year is the 13th year it’s been running and the event has raised over £1.5m for more than 700 different charities.
So, do you fancy taking part? Is there a charity you’re particularly keen to raise money for? Registration is now open so there’s nothing to stop you getting involved. And if you do, we’ll be there as part of the team helping the day run smoothly.
