March 2019 News

As our one4one promise, we will be working with various children’s charities donating a pack of cards each time a pack is purchased.

We are proud to announce for the whole of March 2019 our donations of Nine2nothing packs will be going to Starlight Children’s Foundation

Starlight grants personalised wishes for children who are suffering from a life-threatening or life-shortening illness.

 

Illness takes away so many choices and opportunities from children and young people; but a wish gives them back some important control and allows them to think about something other than the demands of treatment.

 

The whole family have something positive to focus on and spending crucial time together creates the opportunity for normal, relaxed experiences together, creating lots of precious memories they will hold on to for the rest of their lives.

 

Just before a wish is granted, Starlight sends the family a ‘wish pack’ which

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity: A lifeline for families with a seriously ill child

Rainbow Trust enables families who have a child with a life-threatening illness to make the most of time together; providing expert practical and emotional support, wherever they need it and for as long as it is needed.

At Rainbow Trust, we support seriously ill children and their families. We pair each family who has a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness with a Family Support Worker who becomes a trusted and constant person in family life. We recognise that the whole family is affected by a child with a serious illness. Whether it’s the parents, the unwell child, siblings, carers or grandparents, we believe that families with a seriously ill child should be fully supported in the way that suits them, from the moment their child becomes ill, during treatment, and if needed, through bereavement.

With more than 30 years’ experience, Rainbow Trust provides essential practical and emotional support to families, filling in the gaps between hospital, hospice and home, being there whenever and wherever our support is needed. Some of the ways we support families include:

  • Attending hospital appointments, helping parents understand what is happening when they are already in an overwhelming situation
  • Driving a parent and sick child to hospital so they can focus on looking after their sick child and not have to worry about parking or congestion charges
  • Reassuring a child whose brother has leukaemia, for example, that cancer isn’t a big bad monster coming to get them too
  • Bereavement support for the whole family, any time, day or night.

It is estimated that over 49,000 children and young people in the UK live with a life limiting or life-threatening condition.

 

We are currently supporting over 2,500 families around the UK, but with your help we can extend the range and scope of services and ensure high quality services and support to families so that every family in the UK who has a child with a life-threatening illness receives the support they need.

As our one4one promise, we will be working with various children’s charities donating a pack of cards each time a pack is purchased.

We are proud to announce our first donation of Nine2nothing packs will be going to Spread A Smile charity who provide entertainment for seriously ill children in hospital. Our nine2nothing packs will go in their goodie bags that get given to the children so they have a chance to play with their families.

We are so proud to be able to donate to Watford General Hospital, not only is it our local hospital but also where Summer was born!

This donation also gave Summer a chance to see her donation, I often think for a 8 year old dropping a box with packs of cards in, at the post office is not the same as actually hand delivering to a local charity. We were not allowed to go onto the ward and distribute them but the nurses were so grateful and to see Summer’s face light up and know she had helped do a marvellous thing was a true privilege. We hope to be able to continue to helping many more worthwhile charities.

We thought it would be nice gesture to give the sick children who can’t get home this Christmas something to look forward to.
