Adey Steel staff have helped raise almost £300 for Rainbows by fundraising at a Leicester Riders game.

A team of four from the steel fabrication infrastructure specialists teamed up with KS Composites as part of a charity takeover by Rainbows during the Leicester Riders vs Manchester Giants British Basketball League Trophy game at the Morningside Arena in Leicester. The Leicester Riders came away winners of the cup game 104 – 88 in front of a sell-out crowd. Together they raised £289.89.

Adey Steel, part of the Adey Steel Group, adopted Rainbows as its charitable partner in late 2023. Since then, the team at Adey Steel have been busy fundraising for Rainbows with Contract Manager Stuart Gray completing the Robin Hood Half Marathon and raising over £400 in the process. Staff also pull-overed all the stops on Christmas Jumper Day to raise a further £100 for the Loughborough-based charity. A host of other fundraising activities are planned for the coming weeks and months.

Founded in 1994, Rainbows has cared for thousands of children and young people from the East Midlands with life-limiting, life-threatening and terminal conditions – as well as supporting their families through the toughest of times.
