Staff from a local estate agency looked tickled pink – among other colours – after completing a charity 5K.

Home County Rentals staff joined over 1,000 participants for the 5K Colour Dash in Luton’s Wigmore Valley Park on Sunday, raising more than £1,000 for Keech Hospice Care.

The Harpenden-based estate agency has supported Keech since the company began.

After dusting off their trainers to participate in the event, the team quickly surpassed their initial fundraising target of £750, which can provide 24-hour care for an adult in an inpatient unit.

They would like to extend their thanks to everyone who donated and helped them to go beyond this target and make a difference to Keech Hospice and the lives of those who are in need.

Owner Liz Sibley said: “It was a fantastic event with a positive spirit which was reflective of the invaluable support that Keech provide for many local families.”
