Now Rainbow Hub is calling on all Rainbow Ramblers to help raise funds by taking part in the event on Saturday 24 April.
The charity is asking people to use their daily exercise to walk, run, or cycle the five or 11 miles usually undertaken for the Rainbow Ramble. However if anyone is isolating, shielding or is simply not a fan of walking or running, they can choose their own challenge.
Kat Nelson, Head of Fundraising at Rainbow Hub, said: “We are devastated that we cannot celebrate our birthday with everyone at the centre but we will be planning a big event for our 21st next year.
“We hope people will take part in our Virtual Ramble and help us raise much needed funds. People can share pictures and videos of themselves completing the challenge on the day using #RainbowRamble.”

The usual entry fee for the Ramble is £15 for adults, £5 for children and free for those in wheelchairs and pushchairs, but this year the charity says any amount donated will help to maintain and expand its services.
Anyone wanting to join in with the event can donate via JustGiving. People are encouraged to also set up their own sponsorship page by following the link and clicking on ‘start fundraising’.
