Losing a loved one can be devastating. But there may come a time when you would like to do something in their memory. Everyone is different, but some people want to do something positive in a difficult situation.
Some may find that family and friends wish to show their support in a practical way. Often this can mean fundraising for a good cause which is why we created Forever There Tribute Funds. Money raised in the fund will go towards caring for families with a seriously ill child. Rainbow Trust can only support one our of four families that need us. You can help us make sure that one of Family Support Workers is always there for more families.
Anyone can contribute to a Forever There Tribute Fund in whatever way they wish and there are some ideas for you here. A Forever There Tribute Fund remains open indefinitely or until you choose to close it. Every year we will let you know your fund total and how you have helped families at their time of greatest need.
