AS PART of its 21st birthday celebrations, a charity is planning its most ambitious fundraising project to date.

The Rainbow Centre, for youngsters with cerebral palsy, is arranging a five-day trek across the Bukk mountains of Hungary, taking in lush forests, picturesque lakes and stunning vistas of Central Europe.

The challenge in aid of the Fareham-based charity will take place in May 2012. And on June 28 there will be a free presentation evening about it in The V Suite of Fareham Town Football Club.

Julie Woodward, events fundraiser, said: ‘The way we help children and adults with physical impairments is by using conductive education.

‘This system of learning originated from the Peto Institute in Budapest and on the final day of the trip, there will be a visit to this centre to show how the money raised will bring the same opportunities for people here in the UK.’
