In order to raise money for the Rainbow Trust, our team in Hedge End decided to take part in the Southampton Big Fun Run in addition to organising a raffle in branch.
The Rainbow Trust is the leading organisation providing emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. Depending on the needs of the family they can offer support to parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters and grandparents at home, in hospital or in the community.
Ruth, the branch manager, stated that “As a team we felt strongly about supporting a charity which helps children.”
The day started with a warm up which was a lot of fun and ended after a gruelling 5k run. The event was challenging but our ladies managed to power through. Together with the raffle tickets sale and the money fundraised from the run the team managed to raise £400 for the charity.Click here for more
