FAMILIES from across Somerset are urged to take part in this year's  St Margaret’s Colour Run.

The event, which will raise vital funds for the hospice, will take place from 10am on Saturday, May 18 at Taunton Racecourse.

If you haven't signed up already, you can do so on the day.

Outlining what the fundraising event is all about, a spokesperson from the hospice said: "With over 500 people already signed up, our much-loved Colour Run promises to deliver a fun filled day out for all the family. With paint stations and bubble stations across the 4km route, a medal for all finishers, the new Bubble Toddle for our littlest of fundraisers and a free family village there’s something for all the family."
