Anna's skydive for Rainbow Trust

"I have always wanted to do a skydive but being so focused on my work I never found the time to organise it, however during lockdown I carried out some research and stumbled across the charity and was amazed at the work they do for these families struggling to cope caring for a child with a life-threatening illness."

Danielle and John climb Kilimanjaro

"The support from Rainbow Trust has been great, they have provided us with lots of encouragement and materials to help us with fundraising. Rainbow Trust were also able to see how we were getting on through social media etc. whilst we were climbing and once we reached the top."

Why I completed my first Ironman for Rainbow Trust

"I managed to raise £1,200 for Rainbow Trust, mainly through word of mouth and social media. I think that as long as you focus your message on the good work the charity does and why it’s needed, people tend to be very generous and want to support your efforts."
