Bright idea raises money for hospice

More than 50 people stepped up to raise money for the Otago Community Hospice in Oamaru on Saturday.

Snap Fitness Oamaru hosted Walk for Hospice — a 5km charity walk along some of the North Otago town’s walkways — encouraging people to wear bright colours and give money to a good cause.

The event raised more than $1500 for the Otago Community Hospice. A Givealittle fundraising page will remain open for the rest of the month.
