The most fantastic and most fun fundraising event is coming back to Tameside on Sunday 2 June: yes, it’s the Willow Wood Bubble Rush!

Suitable for all ages, the Bubble Rush has four bubble stations, where the highly trained bubble specialists will be pumping out huge swathes of brightly coloured bubbles for you to revel in.  And its double bubble for the Willow Wood Bubble Rush – whilst others have a 5k route through the bubble stations, by holding it at Dukinfield Rugby Club’s grounds our bubblers have to go around twice, so they get eight goes through the bubbles!  Double Bubble indeed!

It really is great fun, and since the bubbles are environmentally friendly and coloured with food colourings it’s perfectly safe for even babies and toddlers.  And with under two years of age going free, it is the perfect day out for all the family.

Although the Bubble Rush starts at noon, we’ll be asking everyone to sign in on the day from 10am.  With music to accompany the event, a mass warm-up, merchandise stalls and refreshments available you’ll have a fantastic time.  The registration fee includes a commemorative T shirt and a colourful medal and is great value at just £10 for 3-15 years and £20 for adults.

Chris Hayden, event organiser said: “The atmosphere was brilliant last year, and will be even better this year – we’ll be having more stalls, more food and more fun.  It’s not a race, so just enjoy your time in the bubbles.  Last year we had over 1,200 registered bubblers, and we are expecting even more this year, so if you want to be sure of your place register now.

“Although the Bubble Rush is great fun, it is a fundraiser for the Hospice, and the registration fee only covers the cost of putting the event on.  We need £6,800 each and every day to provide our care to the people of Tameside and Glossop, so we do ask that you try your hardest to raise funds for us.

 “Having said that, we do know just how difficult it can be to raise sponsorship so why not order one of our free fundraising cards when you register. At just £2, your friends and colleagues will be happy to have a go – and they could win a cash prize, while we’ll get £100 with every completed card.


Just go to and sign up now.  You really will have the best time at the Bubble Rush.”
