Ms Sheppard said the event proved popular with families, with people of all ages and abilities taking part. They were invited to run, walk or dance the route, passing five “bubble stations”, which jetted out different coloured foam and played “unique music” as they passed.

With sponsorship still coming in, it is hoped the event might raise more than £35,000 for the hospice, which cares for people with progressive illnesses. St Elizabeth Hospice has thanked everyone for taking part.
