Every film lover will recognise the iconic quote “Run, Forrest, Run” but the Senior Management Team at QTS has taken it one step further and decided to re-enact the scene for themselves, well for 13.1 miles of it anyway.
What, we hear you say, well you heard us right, because our Senior Management Team, whom don’t have a runners bone between them, have decided to run the Great North Run – Half Marathon in a show of support and a bid to raise money and awareness for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young Adults, our official charity partner for 2020.
To learn more about Rainbows and the partnership with QTS, view here
We asked why they had chosen such a challenge, with zero long-distance experience, but besides being for such a great cause, they simply said ‘we just felt like running’.
We’d love for you to show your support to Shaun (Founder and Managing Director), Craig (Sales & Marketing Director) and Josh (Operations Manager) as I’m sure they won’t mind us saying, but they will need it.
Please donate, however small or big and help all of us at QTS raise money and awareness for Rainbows.

QTS are delighted to announce our official Charity partner for 2020 as Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People; the only hospice in the East Midlands which provides care and support to children and young people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
As a company, individuals and as a team, QTS will pledge to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Rainbows and will challenge ourselves daily via fundraising activities to deliver on our pledge.
About Rainbows Hospice
Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 Rainbows has opened its doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most. As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where children with life-limiting conditions and their families can find care and support.
Its incredible team of people helps with the end of life care, symptom management, short breaks, and respite care. They’re also there to support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end.
Rainbows care for over 400 children and young people every year, offering bereavement support, sibling support and a range of therapies including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, music therapy and play therapy.
The team are there for families when they need them the most, but they couldn’t do their work without the help of people like you.
Each and every donation Rainbows receives makes a huge difference to its children, young people, and their families. With only a little government funding, the charity relies on people like you to keep providing all these invaluable services. In fact, 80% of its funding comes from people like you.

Why QTS choose Rainbows Hospice?
As most businesses do, QTS spent the final months of 2019 considering its business objectives; however, with a new year, a new decade and a burning desire to do more, the business leaders decided they wanted to give back and wanted to challenge themselves for a greater cause like never before.
With a seed planted, wider team discussions quickly took place and before you knew it, Rainbows became the perfect partner. What a great cause and one that touches many lives, in so many ways.
So, why did QTS choose to support Rainbows, and here’s what our Company Director’s had to say:
Shaun Ingram, QTS – Managing Director, said:
“I have been fortunate enough to attend fundraising events for Rainbows over the last few years and not only was a lot of money raised at these events it was humbling to meet people who have had the support from Rainbows.
As the only hospice for children and young people in the East Midlands, it resonates with us all who work and live in the area. Rainbows rely heavily on charitable donations as only 15% of their funds come from government bodies and I am really pleased we can help in some small way.”
Craig De-Lara, QTS – Sales & Marketing Director, said:
“When we sat down to discuss our charitable support this year, there were many fantastic organisations and causes to choose from, but it didn’t take long for us to make a collective decision to support Rainbows.
Rainbows provide family, parental and sibling support to families of children with life-limiting conditions and rely largely on external donations. It’s because of this that we commit ourselves as a business and individuals to do all we can to support Rainbows in raising as much as we can this year.”
Following a recent visit by QTS to the Rainbows Hospice to witness first-hand, the great work and support delivered by Rainbows, here what a Rainbow representative had to say:
Hayley Purser, Rainbows – Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, said:
“We’re so excited to be partnering with QTS in 2020! It was a pleasure to share Rainbows with Shaun and Craig on their visit and see their passion for supporting us. I’m looking forward to seeing all of your creative ideas and we will be there to cheer you on along the way! We currently care for just over 400 families in the East Midlands, your support will help us to continue being there for those who need us.”
Our Plan to Support Rainbows Hospice?
Our pledge is to fundraise tirelessly, raise lots of money and generate greater awareness for the fantastic work done by Rainbows Hospice in the East Midlands.
Our target is to raise a minimum of £5000 and to do this, we need your help!! To keep up to date with our fundraising activities and progress, please visit our Rainbows Just Giving Page and help in any way you can, as every little helps.
