Bubbles took over Lawson’s Showground on Sunday and there were smiles all round as people young and old took part in Blackpool Bubble Rush for Brian House.
The only Bubble Rush event in the North West returned to Blackpool saw over 1,000 people of all ages running, jogging, walking and even dancing through coloured bubble stations along a 5km route.
It’s the first time since 2019 that Bubble Rush has taken place due to the pandemic, the event has now raised around £220,000 since it first took to Lawson’s Showground in 2017. Sponsorship for this year’s Bubble Rush is still coming in.
Events Manager, Kayleigh Penn, said: “It was a sad day when we had to cancel Bubble Rush in 2020 with just weeks to go before the event. And despite our hopes, our follow-up date for later that year just wasn’t possible
“So we were absolutely delighted to finally be able to set off our bubblers and help them get completely covered in bubbly foam! It had been a long time coming, and it was so wonderful to see every single person thoroughly enjoying themselves. We even had some of our incredible Brian House families taking part.
“We are so grateful to everyone who took part and raised money in sponsorship or made a donation so that we can continue to provide specialist care to our area’s most fragile children. Every penny raised at this event will help us to support life-limited children and their families on the Fylde coast.
“A huge thank you to our amazing event volunteers who gave up their time so we could put on this super fun event – we really wouldn’t be able to do it without them.”
