Rainbow Hub’s Birthday Celebration Virtual Ramble on Saturday 24th April 2021 is on target to raise
over £10,000 for the charity which has been supporting children and young people with physical and
neurological disabilities for 20 years. They would love to have a big party but cannot due to COVID restrictions.
But the fantastic virtual event, supported by JMW Solicitors and Frank Whittle Partnership, saw those who would
usually take part in the Rainbow Ramble, as well as many others who wanted to support them, make a donation
and enter the Virtual Rainbow Ramble. People used their daily exercise to walk, run, or cycle the 5 or 11 miles
usually undertaken for the Ramble and post videos and pictures online.
Many of the children who attend Rainbow Hub also took on personal challenges including steps in Race Runners
and walkers, stand up to sit down, standing for a timed period, cycling, bouncy castle jumps – all activities that many
of us would take for granted. Amongst these were Amber McLoughlin, Finley Crosby, Ronnie Berends-Sheriff and
Alex McPherson from Chorley; Brooke Emmington from Longridge; Evie Jackson from Leyland; Phoebe Harrison,
Luke Carter and Phoebe Fahey from Preston; Oscar Darwin from Formby; Scarlett Steeden-Smith from Blackpool;
Aaron Wood from Warrington and Jack Bennett from Barrow in Furness and many others!
Lyndsay Fahey, CEO, Rainbow Hub, said “we are amazed and delighted with the support we have received –
it is a fantastic result and it was brilliant to see the community coming together to support a local charity.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who took part or donated, especially JMW Solicitors and Frank Whittle
Partnership, and the children have been amazing and worked so hard on their different challenges.
All the funds raised via this event will help the charity to continue to provide specialist support for children
with disabilities, in order for them to live more active and independent lives.”
