We held a presentation evening for this years Marathon in Installments at “V” Fareham Town Football Club on Sunday 18th September. The Marathon in Installments ran from Saturday 30th April until Saturday 9th July and around 60 people completed the event raising £4,800 in joint sponsorship and this will make a considerable difference to the lives of the children and adults that currently use the services of The Rainbow Centre.

During the evening awards were presented for special categories such as fastest time, oldest participant, youngest participant and even a special prize for Pip the dog who was the first four legged friend to complete the marathon.

Peter Hull was guest speaker at the presentation evening. Peter is HCC Disability Sports Development Officer working with grassroots sports groups and organisations as well as governing bodies and schools to raise awareness of disability sport.

It is hoped that the Marathon in Installments will become the signature event for the Rainbow Centre from 2012 onwards and we are pleased to confirm that we have the backing of Fareham Rotary Club for next year’s event.
