Rainbows fireworks event raises over £46,000 for the hospice


A Fireworks Spectacula­r held in Leicester has raised £46,465 for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

For a smaller event than usual, 8,000 people turned out at Leicester Racecourse to support the Loughborou­gh-based charity on November 6.

Claire Hoggan, Rainbows Events Fundraiser, said: “Last year, we were all bitterly disappoint­ed to cancel this event. So for this year to be such a success, even though we had to reduce the capacity, it is just incredible.

“The Fireworks Spectacula­r is one of our biggest fundraiser­s and the money it raises for us is invaluable in helping us to provide care and support to those children who need it the most.

“Thank you so much to everyone who supported the event, we couldn’t have done it without you all.”
