Barnsley Hospice Bubble Rush

Barnsley Bubble Rush

Barnsley Hospice is inviting early entries to its biggest fundraiser of the year. Barnsley Hospice is based in Gawber and provides specialist care for anyone in Barnsley with a life-limiting illness, including cancer, motor neurone disease and heart disease. It has ten beds for inpatient care and provides day care at the on-site Limes Support and Therapy Centre.

The Barnsley Bubble Rush returns to Locke Park on July 22 and ‘early bird’ tickets are now on sale.

Last year’s inaugural event saw almost 1400 people tackle the 5km bubble-filled fun run, raising over £30,000 in sponsorship.

Entry is now available at a cost of £15 per adult and £10 per child, before prices rise in April. Family tickets are also available.

Participants, known as ‘bubblers’, are given white t-shirts to be turned multi-coloured by the bubbles, and medals are awarded to all finishers. Fancy dress is encouraged.

The entry price helps cover the cost of running the event but participants are asked to raise as much as they can in sponsorship to help the hospice care for patients and their families.

The Bubble Rush is once again sponsored by Doyle Security. To enter at the early bird rate, visit or call 01226 244244.
