A team from Linford Wood-based marketing and communications consultancy, elliotts Agency, has raised £645 for local children’s charity, Harry’s Rainbow, after tackling this year’s MK Colour Obstacle Rush at Willen Lake.
Eleven team members braved a barrage of colour and water across the three mile course to raise funds for the charity, which aims to support young people and families who have been bereaved through the loss of a significant loved one, following the recent support it provided to a colleague.
Elliotts finance manager, Cindy Wallis, personally experienced the vital support Harry’s Rainbow provides when her son was grieving the loss of his father, Cindy’s husband. After hearing how the charity cared for Cindy’s son, the elliotts team wanted to give something back by raising as much as possible for the charity and its work.
Ann Elliott, CEO of elliotts Agency, comments, “We’re extremely proud of our Colour Rushers’ efforts on behalf of Harry’s Rainbow as they had fun whilst raising money for such a worthy cause. The Colour Obstacle Rush was a great success in its entirety and we couldn’t be more delighted to help the charity in its support for children and families in Milton Keynes who are going through an extremely difficult time.”
Odette Mould, charity operations manager of Harry’s Rainbow, adds, ‘I was delighted to hear that elliotts Agency chose to support us by undertaking the Colour Obstacle Rush. We took part last year and had such a great time! They have raised a significant amount of money for Harry’s Rainbow which will help us to continue the support needed for bereaved children in Milton Keynes. We currently have 117 children registered with us, accessing a range of support we provide, from provision of books and memory boxes, to activities and trips.’
