We have been selected by deVere Europe to be their first charity partner. The company, which is one of the largest independent financial advisory organisations in the world, has committed its annual fundraising efforts to help support seriously ill children and their families.
Rainbow Trust will engage with employees throughout 2020 in a bid to raise vital funds to help support more families with a seriously ill child.
James Green, Divisional Manager at deVere Europe, said:
“We’re really looking forward to partnering with Rainbow Trust, by embedding the charity within our company culture we hope to raise considerable funds that will directly impact families who have a seriously ill child.”
When a child suffers from serious illness, time becomes more precious than ever. We pair each family with a specialist Family Support Worker who helps give them time. They give time for a parent to have a desperately needed break, they make time for the brothers and sisters to help them feel less frightened and isolated and they give time to parents to do the things they used to love, before family life was turned upside down. Every hour of Rainbow Trust’s support helps families to cope.
Oonagh Goodman, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at Rainbow Trust, said:
“We are incredibly grateful that deVere Europe has selected Rainbow Trust to benefit from all their fundraising activities. Corporate partners are vital in helping us fund our expert Family Support Workers who give families the gift of time when they are trying to come to cope with their child’s devasting diagnosis. It’s going to be a great partnership and we are excited to kick-start the partnership, meet deVere staff and support them in their fundraising activities.”
We are a national charity supporting over 2,500 families through its eight care teams in England. We receive no central government funding and is totally reliant on the generosity of the public to help give families with a seriously ill child time to cope.
