Technicolour fun

December 9, 2019 December 2019 No Comments

If you are a kid it’s not often that adults tell you to mess up your clothes.   Perhaps that’s why the Colour Run at Considine park last month was such a hit.  You started with a clean white t-shirt and ended up with your own unique rainbow coloured top.

The day was a fundraiser for the new Waihinga Centre playground, especially the water play feature.   Thanks to the hundreds of children and parents who came along enough money was raised to completely finish the project.   

The fun continued at Parehua.  Children played games set up on the lawn while parents could enjoy a relaxing drink.   The night finished with a fireworks display back at the park and a chance to ride on the fire engine.

“We couldn’t have done it without our generous local businesses” says Charlotte Harding one of the organisers (along with Bec Reilly, Jacinda Cole, Lis Cornelissen and Pip Kershaw).  “Sponsors donated the coloured dyes, staffed the colour stations, paid for the DJ and provided two selfie stations.” 

The great news is that it will happen again next year, bigger and brighter.  Put the date in your diary now. Saturday 7 November 2020.
