The Annual Rainbow House Ramble will take place on Saturday 15th June 2019. Starting at 10am
from Bishop Rawstorne High School in Croston, participants can choose a 5 mile route – more
suitable for families, or the 11 mile more challenging route taking them through Croston,
Mawdesley and Eccleston in the beautiful Lancashire countryside and returning to Bishop Rawstorne
High School where they will collect their medal and goody bag.
Hundreds take part each year and it’s a great way to have fun, keep fit and raise much
needed funds for the charity. Fancy dress is encouraged and there is likely to be anything from
butterflies and bumble bees to rainbows and jesters. Really enthusiastic participants run rather than
ramble and many families are accompanied by their dogs. This year several families will be taking
part in a new Superhero Challenge for the last mile of the walk.
There will be live music from the Southport Group of Rock Choir and Rainbow House mascots Drew
and Lobby Lou will be at the start to take part in the fun and help cut the ribbon to start the event.
The registration fee is £15 for adults (£20 on the day) and £5 (£10 on the day) for children under 16
with children in push chairs and wheelchairs free.
All participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship and receive a pack including a t shirt,
sponsorship forms and training tips.
People who would like to participate can ring 01704 823276 or enter online at
The event is supported by Goldseal, Trust Inns and JMW Solicitors.
Marshalls along the route and first aid cover will be provided Ultrasec Security and a warm up
session will be run by Rachel Bryan from Fitbop. Staff from Nordico Lounge will be face painting
and refreshments will be available from Ellie’s deli and Emma Shaw Ice cream.
Lyndsay Fahey, Head of Strategic Development & Finance, Rainbow House, said “the response to the
annual Ramble is always fantastic and we are so grateful to Goldseal, Trust Inns and JMW and the
numerous people who provide support. There are too many to name them individually but we
thank each and every one who works so hard to make this event possible and supports us with food,
drinks, gifts and their time .”
Many of the families with children and young people who attend Rainbow House will be taking part
or helping at the event including Jonathan Knowles from Todmorden who will be DJ for the day.
Jonathan has cerebral palsy and has been attending conductive education sessions at the centre for
over 10 years which he says has changed his life.
If anyone would like to sponsor any of the participants, they can ring Rainbow House
on 01704 823276 or email firstname.lastname@example.org who will take details and put
them in touch with the parents.
