Morrisons Foundation funds Rainbow Trust drop-in groups

Rainbow Trust celebrates a funding boost following a £3,000 grant from the Morrisons Foundation.

The donation will be used to run our drop-in groups where families of children with life-threatening illnesses can meet with people in similar situations, share their experiences and build relationships to help them through difficult times.

Sarah, a mum supported by us, said:

“These sessions help families to meet other people facing similar challenges and give children the opportunity to play with Family Support Workers who really understand their individual needs. They are brilliant.”

The cheque was presented to our employees on behalf of the Foundation by Kay Goacher, Store Manager of Weybridge Morrisons, on Friday 30 June.

Kay said:

“We were delighted to give this cheque to a charity which is supporting people in our area.”

The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons’ supermarkets in 2015 and gets most of its funding from the sale of single-use carrier bags. Since launching over £10 million has been donated for charity projects across the country.

Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust, said:

“We are really grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for supporting our work and would like to thank them for their generous donation. It will make a vital difference to Rainbow Trust’s work supporting families caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.”
