Can you raise a little sponsorship? Every single penny makes a big difference to those we care for.

  • £20 could help us to provide an hour of nursing care.
  • £40 could allow a nurse to plan individualised care for a guest in our Living Well Centre.
  • £50 could help our Dementia Specialist Nurse to assess the needs and support someone living with dementia and their family.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No. All ages are welcome! However, we do ask that all children aged 15 and under be accompanied around the course by a paying adult.

Is the powdered paint safe? Will it affect my vision or breathing?
Don’t worry – the paint is non-toxic, safe and biodegradable. However, as with any substance, you‘ll want to keep it out of your eyes. For this reason our paint throwers will be careful where they throw it. Although it’s not essential, you could wear glasses or goggles for your eyes or a bandana to cover your mouth if you are concerned.

Is there a minimum sponsorship for this event?
There is no minimum sponsorship, but we hope you will raise as much as possible for your local Hospice. Raising just £20 could pay for one hour of nursing care. Please consider setting up an online giving page to collect sponsors – try a Facebook Fundraiser or JustGiving page.

Can my dog take on the Rainbow Ramble?
Although your four legged friends might look cute covered in multi-coloured paint, please don’t bring them along on the day.

Will there be car parking available on the day?
Car parking will be available at Lambton Park. Stewards will be on hand to help direct you to these areas. Please be aware there is a charge of £4 per car for parking which will go to Lambton Park. This must be paid on the day CASH ONLY. Access via Bonemill Lane, NE38 9HA.

What’s the refund policy?
All entry fees are non-refundable. Should you no longer be able to participate in the event or wish to cancel your place, your entry fee will be treated as a donation to St Cuthbert’s Hospice and not refunded.

How can I contact the organiser with any other questions?
