The Team get a new paint job!

Paignton was a complete riot recently when staff from Oakwood Court College in Dawlish took part in the Colour Rush 5K race for charity. All monies raised will go to Rowcroft Hospice to support the incredible work they do with people who have life limiting conditions.

More than 1500 people took part in the event running over Paignton and Preston beaches while being pelted by helpful spectators with one and a half tons of powdered paint!

Our team made up of staff from Oakwood Court College in Dawlish had been training really hard throughout the summer with lots of planning meetings in the sun and buying new trainers! Well, the gruelling training program certainly worked because Jamie, Mel, Andrew and Harriet all crossed the finishing line in glorious Technicolor having supported the charity to raise in excess of £60,000 with the grand total still growing as final donations flood in.
