Rainbows Hospice Loughborough

Steve and John from the club took some of the club’s cars over to the Rainbows Hospice at Loughborough to allow

Four of the residents the chance of having a go at controlling a radio controlled car.

Once they had mastered controlling the cars around a figure of eight course a small course was set-up for them to have a couple of timed races with staff doing the counting.

A fun time was had by all and a return visit was planned once their new extension has been opened.
