The Yorkshire division of national homebuilder, Bellway manned one of four sponsored paint stations and provided £500 sponsorship for Martin House’s 3.5k colour run, which took place at Stockeld Park in Wetherby last Sunday (July 23rd)

In total 11 people representing Bellway Homes ran in aid of the children’s hospice, with another six manning the Bellway sponsored paint station. All 11 Bellway runners completed the course, which saw them run around the scenic park, passing a total of four paint stations, and getting covered in powdered paint at each one

Adam Tasker, quantity surveyor for Bellway Yorkshire said: “We love being able to take part in the various activities to help Martin House, so when we heard about the colour run we knew we had to be involved.”

“It was great event and to have so many people from Bellway running in aid of this amazing charity was brilliant to see. We loved sponsoring a paint station as well, because let’s face it, throwing paint on the runners was a bit better than being covered by it!”
