Preston Amounderness Rotary Club have donated £1,900 to Rainbow House for the purchase of
a specialist treadmill which is already having a positive impact on the lives of the young people
helped by the conductive education centre.

During a visit to the charity based in Mawdesley, the Club’s President, John Molyneux, said “Rotary is
a worldwide movement of volunteers working to benefit local and international communities. The
Rotary Club of Preston Amounderness is one of 68 Rotary Clubs in Lancashire and Cumbria. In our
local work we aim to support well run charities like Rainbow House who are working in challenging
areas. “
He continued “Rainbow House’s physiotherapy centre project and the benefits it will bring to the
those that need the service appealed to us. We were very glad to be able to purchase the treadmill
for the centre. This has been financed from the Club’s own funds and a grant from the Rotary
Foundation which is the Rotary movement’s own charity, The Club hopes to carry on supporting
Rainbow House.”
Mr Molyneux was accompanied by David Brooke, Chair of the Club’s Foundation and International
Carole Cochrane CBE DL, Chief Executive said, “we are very grateful to the Preston
Amouderness Rotary Club for their generous donation. The treadmill is extremely beneficial to
all of the children and young people that use our services and helps improve mobility and
co-ordination. As we have no statutory funding, the support of the Rotary Club and other
organisations is crucial to our ability to continue to provide and expand our services.”
