Royal Air Force plans “Colour Chaos” in West Midlands fundraiser
The Royal Air Forces Association wants to keep everyone near RAF Cosford in the pink at RAFA Colour Chaos later this month.
This fun family event, open to the general public, is being held within the grounds of RAF Cosford and will entail approximately 5km of colourful fun. You can run, jog, dance, walk, whatever you feel like; the one certain thing is that you will get plastered in powder paint!
The course will pass points of interest around the airfield, so this is great opportunity to see ‘behind the wire’ at an active RAF station. The Association’s team will be waiting to cheer you across the finish line and present you with an event medal. Money raised by the event will help fund the Association’s Storybook Wings project.
Helen Tempest, event organiser, said: “We are all looking forward to RAFA Colour Chaos – it will be a great family day out, with the added bonus of raising funds for Storybook Wings. This allows serving personnel working away from home to record a bedtime story that their children can listen to while they’re away. Music and sound effects are added by our volunteer editors, creating a wonderful keepsake for children missing Mummy or Daddy.”
James, an RAF parent, said: “Prior to deploying to Kabul, I recorded The Gruffalo for my one-year-old daughter through the RAF Association Storybook Wings service. I felt so very reassured and warmed to know that she was able to hear my voice and enjoy our precious time together even in my absence. She thoroughly enjoyed the audio and book combination and I would thoroughly recommend others to use this fantastic service!”
If you can raise a minimum of £50 per person or £100 per family, then you will qualify for free event entry.
