Terms & Conditions

Colour Blast Terms and Conditions 2017

  • Group registrations are allowed for more information please contact Dr Kershaw’s Fundraising Office.
  • Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult registered for the event.
  • The entrant or entrants’ names must be written on the back of the cheque and attached to all forms it covers. Do not send cash in the post. Please make all cheques payable to ‘Dr Kershaw’s Hospice’.
  • The registration fee is non-refundable and contributes to the cost of staging the event and registration pack. Which includes a t-shirt, sponsorship form and paint pouch.
  • We ask that those taking part get sponsored in aid of Dr Kershaw’s Hospice. We do not ask for a minimum sponsorship but we would obviously be grateful for as much sponsorship as you can raise.
  • Places are not transferable. If you are unable to attend the event please inform Dr Kershaw’s Hospice Fundraising Office as soon as possible.
  • We do ask that you only register if you are committed. Taking a place and not participating deprives the Hospice of the sponsor money and a potential participant a place.
  • Participants are welcome to walk, run, or jog the event. This is not a racing event and no timings will be given.
  • We recommend that you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, and if you wish a hat to stop the powdered paint from getting in your hair.
  • Please ensure that you wear appropriate clothing, that you don’t mind having powered paint thrown at! We recommend white clothing so that the colour can be seen to maximum effect.
  • Dogs are welcome to join the Colour Blast, they must be safe around children and kept on a lead at all times. PLEASE NOTE: Whilst we have tested the powder and the ease with which it washes out of clothing and from skin, we have not tested it on dogs and therefore cannot state how easily (or otherwise) it washes out of fur! If you don’t want a multi-coloured dog (potentially for a few weeks!) Please leave your four-legged friend at home!
  • The coloured powdered paint is actually corn starch, it is non-toxic, bio-degradable and will not affect the environment. The paint should not cause harm to participants however we recommend that if you have a respiratory, skin or medical condition that could be affected and are unsure, that you consult your doctor.
  • You are not permitted to use any sponsorship money you raise in relation to your entry in the Colour Blast to pay for your expenses. All sponsor money must be passed to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice no later than 1stNovember 2017.
  • The Colour Blast has been organised with safety as a priority, however, by entering the Colour Blast you agree to do so entirely at your own risk. Dr Kershaw’s Hospice will not be liable for any injury or loss that might occur to you, your family, your pet(s) or property, as a result of your participation in the event.
