Blaby District former chair raises thousands of pounds for Rainbows

The former chair of Blaby District Council has raised £4,394 for Rainbows.

Councillor Phil Moitt is pictured presenting the generous donation to Gary Farnfield, one of our Community Fundraisers.

Cllr Moitt, who led the council from May 2021 to May 2022 raised the money by running 100 miles over 18 days as well as hosting a steak night, a curry night and organising raffles.

He said: “I have visited Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People and they do a fantastic job supporting many families, including ones from Leicestershire.”

Gary Farnfield added: “Thank you to Phil for doing this incredible challenge for us. His miles have helped to create smiles at Rainbows and we appreciate his support.”
