Firm aims to raise £30,000 to help families with terminally ill children
FTI Consulting is delighted to announce that its UK employees have chosen Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity as its 2015 Charity of the Year.
The global business advisory firm, which operates in 26 countries across the world and employs over 600 people in the UK, has committed all of its annual fundraising efforts to help the charity. Rainbow Trust will fundraise, increase awareness and engage with all of FTI Consulting’s UK-based employees throughout the year, as it seeks to raise vital funds to help support more families with a life threatened or terminally ill child.
Chris Osborne, Co-Chairman of FTI Consulting EMEA region, said: “I’m proud that we have chosen Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity as our chosen charity partner for 2015. Its work is critical to ensuring that seriously ill children and their families are given much-needed emotional and practical support, and we look forward to supporting their activities through fundraising and volunteering over the coming months.”
Heather Wood, Chief Executive of Rainbow Trust said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected as FTI Consulting’s Charity of the Year 2015. The partnership will have a huge impact for Rainbow Trust, enabling us to support more families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. We have already received a great response from employees willing to fundraise for us and we can’t wait for the partnership to start.”
Founded in 1986, Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides tailored family support to help terminally ill children and their families, providing whatever emotional and practical support is needed. They may attend hospital appointments with parents, sit by the bedside of the sick child to give parents a break or take worried siblings out for the day.
