Over £6,000 was raised at the Rainbow House Fire Walk on Saturday 15th October at the Mawdesley based conductive education centre. After being trained by staff from B.L.A.Z.E, thirty one brave participants took part in the sponsored challenge which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Participants included supporters of the event, Preston Fire & Security, together with a team from S&S Northern, Rainbow House staff and families who attend Rainbow House who all braved the coals in order to raise vital funds for the charity.
The Fire Walk was a new event for Rainbow House and, in addition to being able to take part in the shortest sponsored walk ever, participants and spectators enjoyed music and entertainment by talented singer and guitarist Connor Banks, 15, who kindly donated his time. Food and refreshments were also available at extra cost.
Carole Cochrane, CEO at Rainbow House said, “This was a new event for Rainbow House and we are delighted with the result which helped us raise funds needed for us to continue and develop our services for children with neurological conditions. Our thanks go to Preston Fire and Security who supported the event and to everyone who took part.”
