Family raises over £2,000 in Colour Dash

Sixteen members of the same family took part in the St Barnabas 5k Colour Dash on Saturday in memory of a beloved family member.

Going under the team banner of Trev's Tribe, they were running as a tribute to Trevor Pacey, who died in February aged 78.

Daughter in law Tara Pacey said: “When someone suggested we do the Colour Dash, we all jumped at the chance.

“It was our way of letting people know what a great person my father-in-law was and to say thank you to St Barnabas for the wonderful care they gave him at the end."

Trevor lived in Grantham most his life, coming to the town when he was just nine-years-old.

He spent his final two weeks with St Barnabas Hospice at Grantham Hospital before he passed away on February 6.

The family, who all live in and around the Grantham area, were keen to do something to remember Trevor whilst at the same time raising money for St Barnabas.

The 5k Colour Dash fun run took place at the Lincolnshire Showground on Saturday, with participants showered from head to toe in vibrant colours at each kilometre.

So far Trev's Tribe have raised nearly £2,000, with more donations set to come in. Together with donations made at Trevor's funeral, the family have raised around £2,500 for St Barnabas.

Tara said: "We are delighted to have raised so much and people can still make a donation if they wish at any of the family' JustGiving pages."
