We were delighted to welcome our new Patron Sophie Christiansen to The Rainbow Centre last Friday. Sophie is one of the stars of last summers Paralympics having won three gold medals in the dressage. Val Milner, a volunteer at the Centre said “ She is inspirational. The children can see what can be achieved by someone with the same disability”. Sophie, who has cerebral palsy, toured the Centre and met the children and parents before picking the winning tickets on the Christmas Grand Draw. The lucky winner was Olwen de Swart who has won a RIB.
