WATCH: Colourful way to raise cash

Hundreds of fundraisers added colour to their lives in Benton this Father’s Day.

St Oswald’s Hospice welcomed around 1,500 supporters to the Rising Sun Country Park, where it hosted the Kaleidoscope 5K, a powdered paint run and party to help raise much-needed funds.

A colour cannon was fired to start the race and the runners were covered in paint as they completed the course.
