G'day Clare

Select all your text boxes.
Click the little 'T' at the top of the swatches panel.
Click on your red colour in the swatches panel.

You should get in the habit of applying paragraph or character styles to your text — then you just need to update the style, rather than having to mess around with the text frames.

Hope that helps.
m.
