Over the past few years, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of support received from people fundraising for us. Whether it was running a marathon, hosting a bake sale, dropping loose change in a collection tin or setting up a monthly direct debit, it all makes a huge difference to the families we support. We simply couldn’t do it without you.
Here is a snippet of just some of the different activities our supporters have got involved in.
Our lovely Essex Friends spent the festive season visiting the Harold Wood residents in Santa’s sleigh. They raised an amazing £2,500. Thank you!
Runa Haque-Bousque completed a trek in Uganda last October and raised a staggering £13,554.50. Runa wanted to show her support to Rainbow Trust after her family was supported by us a few years ago. You’ve done us proud Runa, thank you!
Staff at World Duty Free have pulled out all of the stops for Rainbow Trust over the past two years. Fundraising efforts include a 24-hour walk from London to Brighton, a 1,000-mile cycle from Amsterdam to Budapest and some brave staff members skydiving. So far, they have raised a whopping £127,685. You name it, they have done it, from till point collection pots right through to running half marathons! Thank you team for your ongoing support.
When Steven Summers, a father from North Yorkshire heard about Rainbow Trust he felt compelled to do something for the charity. Steven signed up for the ultimate challenge and this September he will attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. Setting out with a target of raising £3,800, to date he has raised almost £8,000!
A huge thank you to everyone who has fundraised for us this year – you are all amazing and we couldn’t do what we do without your support. If you would like to be a fundraising hero, get inspired and find out how you can get involved.
