Samba Band Boosts Bubble Rush Runners

The Boys’ Division Samba Band performed at Bolton Hospice’s Bubble Rush fundraising event at Queen’s Park. Eight pupils in Years 9 to 12, joined by Mr Forgrieve and Mr Bleasdale, were delighted to give an energy boost to those participating in the 5K run, helping to keep the legs pumping in a carnival atmosphere. They entertained a receptive and appreciative audience for two hours.

The four bubble stations, where participants were sprayed with coloured foam by Bubble Commandos, were hugely popular and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout the event. Mr Forgrieve said, “It was highly amusing to see hundreds of smiling faces of all ages emerging from the bubbles, and great to see the large crowd thoroughly enjoying themselves whilst raising substantial funds for this very worthy charity.”
