Thank you for funding our work with sick children
Cleo at home
I'm sending you a huge THANK YOU for supporting our Global Giving project to support sick children in England. Your donations have helped us to reach families like Cleo's, through providing hospital support during her treatment for hypo plastic left heart syndrome. She, her parents Jo and Rupert and big sister Bo, have been supported by Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker, Nicki, for three years.
Jo says, "Nicki helps us with hospital visits. The stress of going to those meetings, knowing what your child will be put through and how stressed she will be is so difficult. The journey to the hospital is always so worrying; it’s great to be able to share that with someone. Rupert is self-employed so any time he takes off means lost income for us. And, someone needs to be at home for Bo. Having Nicki there means that Rupert can continue working, I don’t have to go to appointments by myself, and Bo is still looked after."
We have recently published our latest annual report, which contains some more wonderful stories of some of the 1,958 families we have helped over the last year thanks to your support.
If you'd like to continue supporting our projects on Global Giving, we have five other initiatives which we are hoping to fund through Global Giving donations, so that we can continue to reach even more families who are going through the terrible stresses of caring for a seriously ill child.
Please also follow our progress on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, where you can see how our families are creating memories together with Rainbow Trust's support.
