“We are delighted to have held a spectacular fundraising event for Rainbow Trust. It’s such a great opportunity for people to have some fun while raising awareness for such a worthy cause”.
Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust says:
“It’s really great to see local community groups such as the Harold Wood Friends Group host events like this. We want to thank them and all the people who attended and donated to Rainbow Trust. We have a care team in Essex which supports local families across the region so this money will really help these families with a seriously ill child receive the vital support we provide”.
