Supporting St John in Wales through Colour Me Rad
St. John Cymru, Wales’ leading first aid charity are selflessly committed to reducing the number of people who die unnecessarily. Their vision is to have a first aider on every street in Wales and their lifesaving work is greatly appreciated. On Saturday 30th May 2015 Colour Me Rad (CMR) came to Margam Park (near Swansea), choosing St John Cymru as their ‘Charity of the Year’ donating from their proceeds to this worthy cause.
With hardly a day left before the event St John sent out an appeal saying they were in desperate need for extra help at the event. The Rapid Relief Teams (RRT) in Swansea and Cardiff responded immediately to their appeal and saw this as a fantastic privilege to support St. John’s and Colour Me Rad.
Colour Me Rad could hardly have found a more picturesque spot to host this event in Wales than Margam Park with over 1,000 acres of beautiful parkland and the famous Margam Castle as a stunning backdrop.
RRT arrived early Saturday morning with many willing volunteers and moved in along with St John’s to assist in all aspects helping to run this colourful event. From the start line to the finishing post RRT were stationed around the track undertaking many diverse roles from distributing water and providing free hot drinks to colour bombing the runners and spraying them with colour canons!
To see so many from all walks of life having fun and at the same time supporting charity was very inspiring. This certainly turned out to be a truly amazing day and top marks to Colour Me Rad for coming up with such an awesome way to generate needed funds for charity!
