Pie charts to match conditioning formatting colors of cell

Im very new to all this so sorry if i haven't come across correct.

I have a macro that changes my chart colors basted on the conditional formatting of of a cell.

the problem i have is that i have to run the macro manually and i would like it to work automatically soon as the cell connected with chart changes color the chart updates and matches the colour.

THE CODE (a very kind person done for me)
Sub colourTheCharts()
    Dim co As ChartObject
    Dim sourceData As Range
    Dim n As Long
    Dim ser As Series
    Dim seriesFormula As String
    For Each co In ActiveSheet.ChartObjects
        Set ser = co.Chart.SeriesCollection(1)
        seriesFormula = Mid$(ser.Formula, 10)
        seriesFormula = Left$(seriesFormula, InStr(seriesFormula, ",") - 1)
        Set sourceData = Application.Range(seriesFormula)
        For n = 1 To ser.Points.Count
            With ser.Points(n).Format.Fill
                .Visible = True
                .ForeColor.RGB = sourceData.Cells(n).DisplayFormat.Interior.Color
            End With
        Next n
End Sub
