The Big Hour Challenge is about donating an hour of your time in recognition of importance an hour of support means to a family who has a child with a serious illness.

It costs just £22 to provide families an hour of life-changing support from a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker but we need your help. Rainbow Trust relies almost entirely on donations from people like you to provide its valuable service. How much you can raise in an hour?

You’ll find lots of ideas for how you can fundraise on the Big Hour Challenge website from treasure hunts to sponsored silences and lunch hour Olympics but we don’t want you to stop there. You can take on any challenge during the Big Hour, which runs from 24 - 30 October, and use this to raise funds to allow Rainbow Trust to continue its vital work. We’ve had people jump out of planes, run marathons and host clothes swaps so the sky really is the limit.

Sign up today and spend your hour making someone else’s.
