HIKING enthusiasts are being invited to join a Hungarian trek to mark a charity’s 21st anniversary.

The week-long sponsored Hungarian Challenge will take place next year in aid of the Fareham-based Rainbow Centre, for children with cerebral palsy.

From May 4 to 11, participants will trek through the Bukk mountains and forests, staying in family run guest houses, hotels and a mountain hut. The week ends with a tour of the Peto Institute which has pioneered the use of conductive education.

Centre events fundraiser Julie Woodward, who said ‘The Rainbow Centre has always had a very close connections with Hungary as we use conductive education to help the children and adults who come to The Centre.

‘Hungary is an amazing place so we thought it would be fantastic idea to give our friends and supporters the chance to see this special country for themselves.’
