Taylor Made Computer Solutions, IT service specialists, held their second annual Sporting Dinner at Havant Rugby Club in aid of The Rainbow Centre. This year they managed to set a new personal best by raising £5,000!

 Rainbow’s Co-Founder Helen Somerset How (pictured far left) was delighted to have been invited along to the event.

 Hampshire cricket legend Shaun Udal, who took over 1,300 wickets in a career with Hampshire, Middlesex and England, was the highlight of the evening and entertained around 100 business people in the fundraiser.

 As well as a three-course Indian meal, the night saw a charity auction with prizes including Boris Becker’s signed tennis racquet, a tutored wine tasting by Hermitage Cellars and a free meal for four at the De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel. There was also the opportunity to win a day as mascot for Hampshire’s cricket team.

 Taylor Made managing director Nigel Taylor (pictured far right) said: “We were determined to beat our first year total and I’m delighted at what we’ve achieved. Not only did 100 people come and have a great time but at the same time we have helped make a difference to the lives of local children. It’s a great result and we will be looking to build on this with an even bigger event next year.”

 The children and adults of The Rainbow Centre would like to thank everyone that attended the Sporting Dinner. We would also like to thank everyone that donated prizes which helped towards raising the event’s P.B.

 And of course, a special thank you to Taylor Made Computer Solutions for organising such a fantastic event. The money raised will allow us to continue supporting children with cerebral palsy and adults with cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and those that have suffered a stroke or serious head injury, by helping them to take their first steps on the path to greater independence.
