“It’s really great to see local golf clubs such as Bushey Country Club host events like this. We want to thank them and all the people who attended and donated to Rainbow Trust. We have a care team in West London that supports local families across the region so this money will really help these families with a seriously ill child receive the vital support we provide”.
