A team of architects from Narracotts in Torquay are among hundreds of people set to make their mark on the South Devon Link Road when they take part in the Colour Road Rush in aid of local hospice Rowcroft.
We’ve joined with our parent company, Galliford Try, to invite people to walk or run a three-kilometre section of the dual carriageway, which has been more than 60 years in the making, in a one-off paint run being showered with clouds of colour on Saturday August 1st.
Mike Hughes, of Narracotts, said: “We have one serious runner in our team but the rest of us will just be completing the course for fun. We’ve even given ourselves the team name Narra-trotts.
“We’re hoping to raise £1000 for the hospice and have asked for corporate sponsorship as well as undertaking our own personal fundraising.”
Galliford Try Executive Chairman Greg Fitzgerald added his support: “We have a long-standing relationship with Narracotts and are delighted to see the team have signed up.”
There are only 1,000 spaces available, so people are being urged to register as soon as possible. It is open to anyone aged 13 and over.
