Christmas Fundraising for Rainbows

We will be doing our usual fundraising for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People instead of sending Christmas cards this year.  

For the last ten years, many of us have decided to save the money that we would spend on sending Christmas cards to colleagues and instead make a donation to Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

The company supports this program with a corporate donation of £100 to start the fund rolling and each year, we have been able to offer this incredible organisation contributions of several hundred pounds.  

Please donate here.
