Large-format print company Showcard gets colourful for charity

July 26, 2018

On Saturday 21 July, Showcard sponsored one of the colour stations at the Garden House Hospice Care’s family fun run. The Colour Clash Glow was held to help raise much needed funds for the amazing work they do.

Garden House Hospice Care are a fantastic local charity who provide vital patient care. They deliver free specialist palliative care for over 500 adults a year living with life limiting illness. They also offer a wide range of services for their carers and families, so are a very worthy cause to support.

As a large format printer, we know how to handle colour, so it felt appropriate to get involved in the Colour Clash Glow.

Marketing Manager at Showcard, Chris Burniston, was responsible for organising the sponsorship. He was also one of the volunteers throwing the paint on the day.

“It was a great event to be involved with and the runners appeared to enjoy themselves. Some did their best to avoid getting covered in the paint, while others actively requested more to be thrown at them. I think at the start we believed that as throwers we weren’t going to get as messy as the runners. We were wrong. Very wrong."

Becci Lloyd, Showcard’s HR Officer, took part in the run with her daughter.

“Isabella and I had so much fun and got very colourful in the process. The organisers did an amazing job and it was nice to help raise money for The Garden House Hospice. It was also lovely to see Showcard getting their families involved. All the kids enjoyed it and were bright pink by the end of the event. We can’t wait to sign up again next year.”
