Colourful Noel raises money for children’s charity

Jan 09, 2016
John Mason International’s COO, Noel Briscoe, has helped to raise almost £4,000 for children’s charity Friends of Chernobyl’s Children (FOCC) by taking part in ‘Colour Obstacle Rush’ in Liverpool.

The colour run is a 5km fun run and obstacle course where participants are covered in various colours of powder paint as well as dealing with giant inflatables, bouncy castles and climbing nets. Noel was part of the Lancashire FOCC group which raised £3,856 in total from the run.  

Noel got involved in the charity as his son Sean and his fiancé recently hosted a seven year old girl called Polina from Belarus for a four week recuperative period at their home in Liverpool.    

There are 28 FOCC groups across the UK fundraising to bring children from orphanages and disadvantaged homes in Belarus to the UK for a month each year. During their time in the UK, children spend time at a centre taking part in recreational and medical activities.  

Further information on the charity can be found here: including information on being a host family.
