Supporters Joe and Anna recently celebrated their wedding with a rainbow theme, raising over £1,000 for Rainbow Trust during their special day.
“We think what they do is really special and very in need” says Joe, who talked about the charity during his dinner speech to their 100 guests. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the barn when the speeches mentioned Rainbow Trust. We handed out literature and the children loved the colourful balloons.”
Composers Joe and Anna write and produce pieces of music to be used in advertising. They chose Rainbow Trust to benefit from donations in lieu of presents after Anna had a tough time when she was expecting their twins, Ben and Nathan. She and Joe were given all sorts of worrying information during the pregnancy, but happily they were born safely and with no complications.
Ben and Nathan are now healthy, lively three year olds, so when the couple set a wedding date they knew they wanted to help families less fortunate than theirs.
“We’re so glad we’ve been able to raise the amount we did for Rainbow Trust and hope to raise more, by donating proceeds of the sales of a piece of music we’ve written.
“The lyrics of Rainbow Skies have been written with Rainbow Trust in mind. You can choose how much you want to pay to buy the song and all sale proceeds will be donated to Rainbow Trust.”
