Samba Band Perform at Hospice's Bubble Rush Fundraiser
Sunday, 18 September 2016
Bolton School’s Joint Samba Band set the pace for runners at Bolton Hospice’s Bubble Rush fundraising event held at Queen’s Park in the town.
Pupils in Years 7-10, joined by Music teachers Mr Forgrieve and Mr Bleasdale, were delighted to energise those participating in the 5K run, and they entertained a receptive and appreciative audience.
Mr Forgrieve commented: “It was very satisfying to see so many feet tapping, as well as hundreds of smiling faces in the bright sunshine! The four bubble stations, where participants were sprayed with foam by Bubble Commandos, were hugely popular, and there was a lovely atmosphere in the park throughout the event. It was wonderful to observe the crowds enjoying themselves while fundraising in aid of such a worthy cause."
