New date for Kolor Dash – 1st August 2020

We have unfortunately decided to postpone this year’s Kolor Dash. After careful consideration we have re-scheduled the event and it will now take place on Saturday 1st August.

The event venue and times of the event will remain the same, the run will still begin at 12 with registration from 10:30.

This is an unprecedented situation and we apologise for any inconvenience caused, however we need your support more than ever.

The Kolor Dash is a critical event in the St David’s Hospice Care fundraising event calendar and is very important to help fund the work of the hospice services provided free to all patients and families.  By taking part in the Kolor Dash you are making a positive difference to patients and their families throughout Newport, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Torfaen and South & Mid Powys.

The entry fee together with any sponsorship raised provides vital palliative care to people facing life limiting illnesses as well as providing support to their families at a very difficult time. St David’s Hospice Care, with your help, aims to ensure that patients have the choice to receive care at home, surrounded by friends and family.

On behalf of St David’s Hospice  Care, we thank you in anticipation of your continued support throughout these very difficult times.

Given the new date, we hope that this will mean the weather will be warmer and we can make more of a day out of the event, with the possibility of a summer fayre after the run.

If you have any queries or are unable to make the new date please email: beth.harrington@stdavidshospicecare.org

Thank you

Beth & All the team at St David’s Hospice Care
