Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity has been selected as play and learning expert, Gymboree’s, Charity of the Year 2016 launching in March.
The company, which is the world’s foremost provider of children’s developmental programmes, has committed all of its annual fundraising efforts across all 31 sites, to help the charity support more families with a life threatening or terminally ill child.
Gymboree will host themed parties across the country and take part in Rainbow Trust events throughout the year in a bid to raise thousands of pounds. Both organisations are celebrating milestone birthdays in 2016, with Gymboree turning 40 and Rainbow Trust celebrating 30 years of care.

“We’re all about children at Gymboree, and giving them the best possible start in life. Sometimes things don’t go to plan and that’s where Rainbow Trust comes in, being there at those difficult times to support families through the tough times. We are delighted that all of the events to celebrate Gymboree’s 40th birthday are raising money for Rainbow Trust this year.”
Emma Haines Director of Marketing and Fundraising said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have been selected as Gymboree’s Charity of the Year. 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”.
