Hundreds of people put their best feet forward to take part in the seventh annual Rainbow Ramble organised by The Legacy Rainbow House.

The 400 people walked or ran routes covering five, 11 and 18 miles on Saturday.

The Rainbow Ramble was launched by England disability cricketer Callum Flynn.

Last year’s event raised £28,000 and it is expected to raise a similar amount this year for the Mawdesley-based charity, which works with children with disabilities and brain injuries in Lancashire and Cumbria.

Sonia Harris, community fund-raiser at Legacy Rainbow House, said: “The Rainbow Ramble is a really popular fund-raising event for us and this year has been no exception.

“It was a great success from start to finish and we want to thank everyone who took part for their support.

“The idea is that it’s about walking further for those who can’t.

“Adults and children took part, including children in wheelchairs and pushchairs.”
