Rainbow Hub comes up with colourful fundraising idea!

by Danielle Thompson (August 2020)

RAINBOW Hub has set up a new art challenge on Facebook to encourage people to help raise funds for the Mawdesley based charity.

Rainbow Hub supports children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities.

Like many other organisations, they have had to cancel all their summer fundraising events and have been looking at different ways to raise the funds they need to continue their services. They have adapted to virtual services created to help the youngsters continue the therapies that are so critical to their general development and well-being.

Their new challenge is for people to take part in the #rainbowhubart campaign.

All they need to do is design a rainbow, share a photo of it on Facebook with the hashtag #rainbowhubart and nominate up to five others to do the same.

Kat Nelson, fundraiser at Rainbow Hub said “The needs of the children and young people we support don’t go away because of the pandemic.

“As we have no statutory funding we have to find other ways to raise the funds. We have received some beautiful designs already and we are so very grateful to everyone who has helped us so far especially South Ribble Netball Club.

“If anyone would like to get more information about the work we do, our web site is www.rainbowhubnw.org or we can be found on Facebook, Twitter @rainbowhubnw or www.justgiving.com/rainbowhub.”

All rainbows sent to Rainbow Hub, will then be displayed in their Rainbow ‘gallery’ online. Supporters can help by donating just £5 by texting RAINBOWHUBART to 70490 (texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message)
