A FAREHAM-BASED charity has spoken of its delight at being picked by the new mayor of Fareham as one of her charities.
Cllr Susan Bayford chose three charities to benefit from her mayoral year - the Rainbow Centre, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Tradissar RDA.
Cllr Bayford visited the Rainbow Centre to officially launch the start of her fundraising for them.
The Rainbow Centre offers a unique form of rehabilitation for children and adults with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions.
Lara Bull, business manager at the Rainbow Centre, said: ‘We’re thrilled. As a charity, we only receive £3,000 statutory funding per year but need to raise £510,000. We are entirely dependent on the donations we receive from the local community, without which we could not continue.’
