'Happy' video launches charity Rainbow Run

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Thursday 27th March 2014

MORE than 50 volunteers painted the town red, green, yellow, blue and purple for Barnsley Hospital Charity's latest fundraising effort.

The locals came forward to star in the charity's promotional video filmed at Locke Park for its upcoming Rainbow Run, which is being held there on May 18.

It was filmed by patrons of Barnsley Hospital Charity, Safehouse Pictures UK, and features key skylines of Barnsley, ending in a grand finale at Locke Park bandstand, which is the location for the run.

It saw the volunteers spend a day dancing away to hit song 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams while getting covered from head to toe in brightly coloured powder paint.
