Charities

mascotolympics13 thEach year the event helps local charities raise funds and awareness and this year it was supporting Harry’s Rainbow and Hope for Hollie.

Harry’s Rainbow was started in 2011 by local couple Odette and Lee after the sudden death of their 5 year old son Harry Mould, who left behind his devastated twin Jessica. The charity sets out to help bereaved children and their families by providing resources, offering support, advice and a link to others who are going through a similar situation through a monthly Rainbow group, and organising free activities and trips.

Hope for Hollie was launched in 2008 to raise awareness of the rare and incurable condition Niemann Pick Type C which affects 7 year old Hollie Carter. This disease will eventually strip Hollie of the ability to walk, talk and feed herself, and will lead to childhood dementia. Most children who have this condition do not live past their teenage years. Money raised goes to the Niemann Pick Disease Group (UK ) to help support families such as Hollie’s, and to aid research.
