Formby’s Oscar (3) supports Rainbow Hub’s 20th Birthday Celebration Virtual Ramble

Oscar Darwin (3) from Formby took on a personal challenge to do ten roll-overs unaided for Rainbow Hub’s

20th Birthday Celebration Virtual Ramble which took place on Saturday 24th April 2021 and is on target to

raise over £10,000.

Oscar, who attends conductive education at the Mawdesley based charity, not only did his challenge but

nearly doubled the number of rollovers and raised £180.

The Lancashire charity, which has been supporting children and young people with physical and neurological

disabilities for 20 years, would have loved to have a big party to celebrate their 20th birthday 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.

Many other 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 things that many

of us would take for granted.

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 just 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.”
