Instead of Christmas cards, we're raising money for Rainbows

Instead of sending Christmas cards, we're raising money for Rainbows as a company.

For the last seven years the employees of SLS have used the money usually spent on sending Christmas cards for colleagues as a contribution towards supporting the Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough. SLS also support this program with a corporate donation of £100 to start the fund rolling. Each year, your generous donations have resulted in contributions of several hundreds of pounds to this incredible organisation so they can continue to do such fantastic work supporting those who need it most.
