Pete's Dragons has partnered up with Bubble Rush for the 5km course around Exeter Racecourse at the end of the month.

The charity is looking for people to sign up for the family-friendly event when it is held in Exeter for the first time on Saturday, June 29.

Participants taking on the course will be bombarded by colourful bubbles fired out of foam cannons and receive a medal at the end.

Charity CEO Alison Jordan said: "We are thrilled to partner with Bubble Rush. We immediately knew that a fun, outdoor event suitable for everyone to take part in fitted our ethos perfectly.

"We encourage everyone who wants to have a fabulous family, work or group day out and experience something a little different to sign up and consider fundraising for the valuable work of Pete's Dragons at the same time."

Pete's Dragons, which is based in Exeter Road, Exmouth, provides a bespoke service to anyone in Devon who has been affected by suicide bereavement.

Diana Caldwell, of Bubble Rush, said: "We are so excited to be bringing Bubble Rush to Exeter for the first time.

"There's no minimum or maximum age limit, and the course is pushchair-friendly, so it's a great fun event for families and friends to get together for a fantastic cause.

"Every bubbly step that people take will help to raise vital funds for Pete's Dragons."
