Hundreds of people made their mark on history as they completed the Colour Road Rush on the brand new South Devon Highway in aid of Rowcroft Hospice.
It is hoped the event, organised by our South West region and parent company Galliford Try, will raise in excess of £50,000 for Rowcroft – with many also signing up to give a monthly, regular donation to the hospice.
The run on Saturday August 1st saw hundreds of people complete the 3km route along a specially designated stretch of the brand new road, while being blasted with neon-coloured paint.
Theresa Phillips (49), from Kingsteignton, completed the neon route in memory of her dad, and said: “My Dad was cared for at the hospice last year and we used to drive to and from appointments talking about the new road. He would have absolutely loved this!”
Nigel Palmer, managing director for Linden Homes South West, added:“As part of the Galliford Try Group, we are delighted to have been part of this unique event.
“We contribute a huge amount to the area, in terms of homes and infrastructure, and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this very colourful day and supporting a worthwhile local charity.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
