A CITY park will be transformed into a sea of foamy fun as thousands of people raise funds for a city cancer charity.

Around 4500 runners will take part in a 5k event in Bellahouston Park and be blasted with bubbles along the route.

The Bubble Rush, which will take place on May 6, is being organised by the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.

Supporters of all ages, from tiny tots to grandparents, will make their way round the course dressed in tutus, brightly coloured wigs and giant sunglasses.

The event, which is not timed and only for fun, was last year the biggest Bubble Rush in the UK.

On January 1, 500 early bird tickets will go on sale with adults being charged £16, juniors £7 and families £42.

Anyone registering later will be asked to pay £20 for adults, £10 for juniors and £50 for a family ticket.

Caroline Watson, education and challenges fundraiser at the Glasgow hospice, said: “Bubble Rush is a fantastic event for the whole family as last year’s sell-out proved.

“In 2018, we will be back with lots of foamy fun and entertainment – an amazing way to raise money for your local hospice.”

The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice is raising £21milion to build a state-of-the-art palliative healthcare facility in Bellahouston Park.

The aim is to bring 21st century hospice care to the people of the Glasgow providing a major step forward in provision of care services, providing the flexibility to develop and improve services and lower the age limit to 16-years-old for patients.

The total has now reached £20m with work on the building more than 75% complete and patients expected to move in in spring.

But the hospice depends on the generosity of supporters to raise the £3.1m it needs each year to maintain its invaluable service for the people of the city.

Specialist staff and volunteers are trained to work with patients and families who are living with significant challenges to their health and wellbeing.
