PARTICIPANTS in the Great South Run raised more than £6,500 for the Rainbow Centre.

This year, 32 people took part in the 10-mile race in Portsmouth to benefit the Fareham centre, which supports children with cerebral palsy and adults with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and those recovering from stroke or head injuries.

Centre director Lara Bull thanked the runners. She said: ‘We were absolutely delighted to have so many people running for us this year.

‘It was fantastic to see so many Rainbow tops within the crowds of runners, and all of our cheering volunteers were so very proud of everyone undertaking the challenge.’
