Rainbow Centre appeals for more people to take part in Spinnaker Tower abseil challenge

Have your say

A CHARITY is encouraging people to sign up to its Spinnaker Tower abseil appeal next month.

The Rainbow Centre in Fareham is holding an abseil day on May 14 in a bid to bolster the charity’s funds.

But the charity is currently struggling to fill the required numbers needed for the challenge on the landmark.

There are less then 10 spaces already booked for the event, so the charity is looking at a financial loss unless it can increase the numbers of participants.

As part of a last-ditch attempt to deliver a boost in numbers, the charity is offering the remaining spaces to potential thrill-seekers at a discounted price of £50 per entry plus £50 minimum sponsorship.

The challenge itself has become a well-known task across the Solent region.

All available spaces previously sold out to the public when the event was held last year.

The Rainbow Centre helps people from across the region with cerebral palsy, MS, Parkinson’s, stroke and brain injuries to live life to the full through conductive education.

Conductive education is a unique system of learning which is effective in training undamaged parts of the brain to take control of motor functions previously managed by areas of 
the brain which no longer work.

For those that are looking to sign up the challenge, call the charity on 01329 289500 or visit rainbowcentre.org/events.
