Martyn Pegram, Account Director at Allied Office Machines, is training hard to complete the world’s most popular marathon next month to raise funds for a lovely local charity.
Based in Fareham, The Rainbow Centre is a supporting children and adults with neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, MS and stroke and their families.
Martyn commented: “ I am not a natural athlete but my partner, who ran the London Marathon last year, has inspired me to get off the sofa and help others. We have been working with The Rainbow Centre and I am familiar with all the great work they do there in helping children with complex neurological needs. As a father myself, I can appreciate how enormous this support is for the whole family. The Rainbow Centre does not get any funding, they solely rely on donations. Therefore anyone who can, please donate a few pounds to this worthy cause.”
Inigo Churchill, Operations Director at The Rainbow Centre, added: “ We are extremely grateful to everyone who has sponsored Martyn, it really is very much appreciated. He is looking to raise £1500 and every penny donated will go towards supporting the children and adults in our care. Here are some examples of where your money will go:
£70 could pay for a whole week of snacks for the 54 children that attend The Rainbow Centre.
£220 would pay for one of our Saturday sessions, which are for older children that attend mainstream school during the week.
£490 would fund an entire session for our early intervention class, helping families to learn the very best way to help their child from early diagnosis.”
