Wessex Cancer Trust’s Community Engagement Manager, Lorraine White, said:

“It was another incredible event and we’re celebrating yet another astonishing fundraising total. 

“The success and popularity of Rainbow Run continues to astound us all and we’re so grateful for the amazing support. 

“From our many sponsors, supporters and the team at Sandown Airport to our dedicated volunteers and, above all, every single one of you that took part, we cannot thank you enough. 

“So far, our two Inflatable Rainbow Runs have raised more than £65,000 for Island people affected by cancer and you can all feel very proud in the knowledge your money and efforts are helping to support Islanders when they need it most.”

Photos from the event are now on sale via Robin Crossley’s Website and 50% of the proceeds are being donated to the charity.
