Colour Dash Cancellation

Following government advice regarding social distancing and COVID-19, we have sadly made the decision that this year’s Colour Dash Fest will be cancelled until further notice.
 
We appreciate that many of our supporters have already signed up to this event and that this will come as a disappointment to those who were planning to attend.
 
It is not a decision we have taken lightly. The Colour Dash raises approximately £125,000 for St Barnabas each year and the loss of this funding will be a huge blow to the Hospice. However, the safety of our supporters, volunteers, staff and patients is absolutely paramount.
 
The following months will be a very trying time for St Barnabas as we try to raise enough money to ensure our services can continue without interruption. Therefore, we would welcome the cost of your registration as a much-needed donation. However, we understand that these struggles won’t be unique to the Hospice, and that many of our supporters will require a refund. If this applies to you, please contact our Supporter Care team on supporter.care@stbarnabashospice.co.uk
 
Please ensure that you follow our social media pages so you don’t miss out on any updates over the following few weeks. We will also be regularly updating our website with the latest information.

I have set up a JustGiving page and would like to refund my supporters, how do I do this?

If you have set up your own individual JustGiving page, we recommend that you contact JustGiving to issue your supporters a refund.

If you have created a fundraising page through the ‘Team’ option, this is slightly more complicated and we are reviewing the options with JustGiving to see what we can do.
