Mawdesley-based children’s charity Rainbow Hub receives £1,000 from INEOS colleagues who completed ‘Tour de France’ cycling fundraiser

Mawdesley-based charity Rainbow Hub has received £1,000 from INEOS, the global chemicals company, to support children with physical and neurological disabilities.

The donation comes from the INEOS Tour de France challenge where 113 INEOS staff teams from across the globe have taken part in an ambitious cycling challenge, riding in teams from across its sites to complete the distance of every stage of the world famous Tour de France cycle race. Once completed all 21 stages, teams win the right to donate £1000 to a chosen charity. In total, INEOS are donating £113,000 through this initiative in 2022.

The team at INEOS Enterprises in London chose to support Rainbow Hub – a charity which provides life changing therapeutic services for children from across North West England and supports families as they navigate the challenges associated with raising a child with a physical or neurological disability.

Paul Maddison, Group Financial Controller at INEOS Enterprises, said: “The INEOS Tour de France Challenge is another brilliant initiative that has allowed us to support a charity very close to our hearts. Rainbow Hub has supported my daughter, Katie, since she was 18 months old (she’s now 16). They have helped her achieve some key developmental milestones and I am so grateful for all of the incredible work they do. It has been super special completing this ‘Tour de France’ challenge and I am proud to be raising funds together for Rainbow Hub.”

Lyndsay Fahey, CEO of Rainbow Hub, said: “All of the team at Rainbow Hub are delighted to receive the £1,000 donation and our thanks go to Paul and INEOS Enterprises for dedicating their Tour de France funds to our charity. Every penny we receive helps us to continue to offer our services which are so important to the children and families we support.”

This year, the Tour de France challenge saw 2,569 members of the INEOS team from 31 countries around the world cycle a total of 1,283,865km, the equivalent to an incredible 1,354 summits of Mont Blanc. The aim of the challenge was for each of the teams to complete the equivalent distance of each stage of the iconic Tour de France, each day, many of them squeezing in cycling sessions before, during and after work.
