An Elswick woman has raised £220 during a 20-mile charity walk and cycle for Rainbow Hub.


Jayne Emmington, a member of the Knott End Golf Club, raised funds through a personal challenge. She cycled 10 miles and walked another 10 to raise funds for Rainbow Hub, which supports children with physical and neurological disabilities.

Jayne’s niece Brooke Emmington, 11, has cerebral palsy and uses the services at Rainbow Hub, which is also the chosen charity of the Knott End Lady Golfers Captain, Felicity Lawson.

Jayne said: “I chose 20 miles to represent the 20-year celebration of Rainbow Hub being open, and it’s a great way to say thank you for all the support they give to Brooke and the progress she has made with their help.

“I also wanted to support the lady captain’s chosen charity.”

Brooke insisted on being part of the challenge, so she joined the last part of the walk in her wheelchair, accompanied by Sarah.
