Charity has new face in charge

Charity has new face in charge

by Tom Martin (January 2021)

Rainbow Hub, the Mawdesley based charity supporting children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities, has a new face in charge.

Lyndsay Fahey, 40, has been appointed the Chief Executive.

She has been Interim Chief Executive since June last year when Carole Cochrane left to return to her planned retirement in Spain and has been leading the charity through the difficult months of 2020.

She has extensive experience in the public sector including previous roles as Head of Strategic Development and Finance and Head of Fund-raising at Rainbow Hub.

Bill Ainscough, President of Rainbow Hub, said: “Lyndsay has years of experience, both as a fund-raiser and a parent whose child has benefitted from the services provided by Rainbow Hub. She is well placed to lead the charity in these continued uncertain times and develop our services as we move towards a brighter future. The Board is looking forward to supporting her and the team over the coming years.”

Lyndsay said: “I am delighted to take up the position of Chief Executive at Rainbow Hub. It is close to my heart and has been a great support to me on a personal level in the past. There is a wonderful staff team, together with some amazing volunteers, supporters and Trustees. I am looking forward to working with everyone to make Rainbow Hub the centre of excellence for children with disabilities and their parents and I would like to thank our President Bill Ainscough and the Board for their confidence in me.”
