They raised £2,000 through Peter Lathom’s Charity for rebound (trampoline) therapy at conductive education centre Rainbow House, in Mawdesley.

“The difference between the impossible and possible lies in a person’s determination and Rainbow House really do provide the children and young people with determination.”

Ben Blackman, CEO of Rainbow House, said: “We were delighted to receive such fantastic donations and our thanks go to all the group who participated in such a tough challenge with Leyland Trucks and also to Peter Lathom’s Charity.

“Rebound Therapy has the potential to make a real difference to so many of the children we support and is part of our plan to become a centre of excellence. The generosity of other organisations meant we were able to purchase a rebound therapy trampoline and this donation means our staff who are trained in Rebound Therapy will be able to begin delivering the service.”
