At the start of 2020 we sat down to discuss our charitable support for this year, there were many fantastic organisations and causes to choose from! It didn’t take long for us to make a collective decision to support Rainbows. Rainbows rely largely on external donations to achieve what they do. It’s because of this year that we commit ourselves as a business and individuals to do all we can to support Rainbows in raising as much as we can throughout 2020.

Our Charity of the Year… Rainbows

Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 Rainbows have opened their doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most. And now more than ever, they need your help to keep on bringing care and happiness to their children and families.

At the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can find care and support. Their incredible team of people helps with the end of life care, symptom management, short breaks, and respite care. They are also there to support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end.
