Attwaters Jameson Hill backs charity for severely ill children
Attwaters Jameson Hill is delighted to announce that it has selected Rainbow Trust, a charity that supports the families of children with life-threatening or terminal conditions, as its Charity of the Year.
Rainbow Trust was up against some stiff competition from some truly wonderful charitable organisations nominated by our staff. Also in the mix were Mudlarks Garden, Herts Young Homeless and Stonewall – but they were just pipped to the post this year by our winning contender.
About Rainbow Trust
Rainbow Trust provides vital support to families of children aged up to 18 years who are life-threateningly or terminally ill. According to the charity, there are an estimated 86,625 children in England alone with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition – a number that has trebled over the past 17 years and continues to rise.
Rainbow Trust’s Family Support Workers offer a lifeline to these children and their families, providing practical and emotional support when they need it, for as long as they need it. They support the entire family, from the unwell child and their parents, to carers, grandparents and siblings. This support doesn’t take a specific form – it’s tailored to what each family needs at any given time.
Each year, our Charity of the Year provides a focus for all fundraising efforts here at Attwaters Jameson Hill – for example, our ever-popular annual quiz, our Christmas Jumper Day, and all the other various charitable activities that take place throughout the year.
