The Rainbow Centre Makes An Urgent Appeal For Funds
During the past few weeks many of you may have heard of the crisis appeal launched by The Rainbow Centre. We provide essential support to children and adults with cerebral palsy and adults with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and those recovering from a stroke or head injury.
We are making an urgent appeal for funds to prevent being forced to close our doors. Our service has operated for 24 years and we need to raise £150,000 urgently. Around 77 children and adults presently attend the Centre and if it is closed there is no equivalent service.
Despite operating an energised approach to generating income, the recession has proved too much, leaving us with no cash reserves. Closure could be devastating for many, as the Centre is accessed by people from Surrey, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight. Since launching the appeal we have received donations of £118,000, but we still need to reach our conservative target of £150,000.
The Rainbow Centre originally began working with children with cerebral palsy and their families, teaching Conductive Education, which helps develop new neural pathways to undamaged parts of the brain. In 2007 the service was extended to include adults.
We have been humbled by the level of response to our appeal, but need to raise more awareness. Please be a part of our story and help The Rainbow Centre to be around for another 25 years continuing to deliver its’ outstanding and life-changing service.
