A CHARITY that helps children with cerebral palsy has welcomed a £3,000 grant from a council to fix its heating system.

The Rainbow Centre, in Fareham, received the cash from Fareham Borough Council’s community fund to spend on a new boiler and heating system repairs.

The old boiler at the centre broke down several times in the last year, leaving the centre without hot water which meant the underfloor heating could not function properly.

Community Action Team chairman for Fareham South Trevor Howard said: ‘I’m really pleased we were able to help out with funding before the winter arrived.

‘The Rainbow Centre does a lot for local children and definitely deserves this community funding.’
