We’re delighted to have won the Toast of Surrey 2017 Not-for-profit Organisation Award.
Oonagh Goodman, Head of Marketing and Communications at the Leatherhead-based charity, collected the plaque at the Toast of Surrey Business Awards ceremony at Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge on Wednesday (28 June).
Rainbow Trust has nine care teams of Family Support Workers across England, including Surrey, helping families at home, in hospital and in the community making life a little easier. Providing emotional and practical support, Family Support Workers help families wherever they are needed, such as taking siblings to school, driving families to hospital appointments and giving parents and carers some respite.
Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising, said:
“We are absolutely thrilled to have won the Toast of Surrey Not-for-profit Organisation Award and would like to thank the judges, sponsors and everyone involved in selecting us in this category. It was an honour for us to attend the awards ceremony and to celebrate with other worthy causes. This award is testament to the dedication of our Family Support Workers who provide emotional and practical support to families across England caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.”
