On the day

Registration opens at 12 noon with the ramble stating at 1pm and dependent on numbers we may need to stagger start times to ensure the safety of all of our supporters. If you are arriving by car, parking is available at a cost of £4 per car.

Can you raise a little sponsorship?

Raising a little sponsorship while taking on our Rainbow Ramble will make a big difference to us.

  • £20 could help us to provide an hour of nursing care.
  • £40 could allow a nurse to plan individualised care for a guest in our Living Well Centre.
  • £50 could help our Dementia Specialist Nurse to assess the needs and support someone living with dementia and their family.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. All ages are welcome! However, we do ask that all children aged 15 and under be accompanied around the course by a paying adult. 

Is the powdered paint safe? Will it affect my vision or breathing?

Don't worry - the paint is non-toxic, safe and biodegradable. However, as with any substance, you‘ll want to keep it out of your eyes. For this reason our paint throwers will be careful where they throw it. Although it’s not essential, you could wear glasses or goggles for your eyes or a bandana to cover your mouth if you are concerned.

Is there a minimum sponsorship for this event?

There is no minimum sponsorship, but we hope you will raise as much as possible for your local Hospice. Raising just £20 could pay for one hour of nursing care. Please consider setting up an online giving page to collect sponsors – try a Facebook Fundraiser or JustGiving page.

Can my dog take on the Rainbow Ramble?

Although your four legged friends might look cute covered in multi-coloured paint, please don’t bring them along on the day.

Will there be car parking available on the day?

Car parking will be available at Lambton Park. Stewards will be on hand to help direct you to these areas. Please be aware there is a charge of £4 per car for parking which will go to Lambton Park. This must be paid on the day CASH ONLY.

Access via Bonemill Lane: NE38 9HA

What's the refund policy?

All entry fees are non-refundable. Should you no longer be able to participate in the event or wish to cancel your place, your entry fee will be treated as a donation to St Cuthbert's Hospice and not refunded.

More about St Cuthbert's Hospice

To learn more about our work, please visit

The recent coronavirus outbreak has changed our workload at the Hospice, but it certainly has not diminished.

Our team at the Hospice have been working tirelessly to ensure that we continue to be there for local people with life-limiting illnesses and their families. But this hasn't been without its challenges. Visiting to patients on our In Patient Unit has been severely restricted, which has been incredibly difficult for patients and their families, and for our team to support.

Within the Living Well Centre, we have, where we can, continued to work with people over the phone. These wellbeing calls have become longer and more difficult as lockdown continued and as our guests have become more poorly and their carers have had to take on additional care tasks without services to give them respite.

The need for bereavement support has increased and support for children and young people has been particularly important at this time. Across the Hospice the main impact we aim for is a good death for as many people as possible. Coronavirus has meant that many in our community have not experienced a good death. Death has been sudden, quick and traumatic; family have not been able to visit; family and friends have not been able to mourn properly without the ability to participate in their usual rituals. We therefore know that this team is going to be particularly busy in the months ahead.

The other impact of the pandemic has been in the loss of income. We have had to cancel all but two of our fundraising events and our community fundraising has halved. The stark reality is that we don't know what the future holds for fundraising and the money coming in is likely to stop.

What doesn't stop is the support were providing to local families affected by life-limiting conditions, living here in County Durham. And because of the high incidence of coronavirus in County Durham, we know that the need for our services is not going to diminish. The aftermath of coronavirus, with its possible effects on lung, liver and kidney function, will likely create a new cohort of people living with life-limiting illnesses. In these challenging times those affected need our help more than ever.

It is thanks to the local community that the Hospice was founded, and it is that same support that sustains it today. St Cuthbert's was a sustainable organisation before the pandemic. It will be sustainable after the pandemic. But your support today could help us to bridge the gap between a proud past and a vibrant future.
