No parent should outlive their child!

No parent should outlive their child!

Posted by Mark Hannan on 21st Feb 2015

Since mid November 2014, we've been proud to support the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity by donating £1 from everything we sell here on our website!

The Rainbow Trust is a truly a fantastic organisation that provide emotional and practical support for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. No parent should outlive their child and Rainbow Trust was established in 1986 so that families should not have to cope alone.

Rainbow Trust Children's Charity as work

Did you know that there are over 11,000 families in England enduring the heartbreak of caring for a seriously ill child. Every day brings new challenges, and the burden can be a lot to bear, especially when the family has no one to turn to for support. Rainbow Trust fills that gap through individually tailored care, for as long as the family needs it, provided by teams of Family Support Workers. They maintain a sense of normality for the entire family by helping with hospital trips, taking the siblings to school and in many cases providing care during the final days of a child’s life, helping with funeral arrangements and bereavement support.

Last year a film was aired on the live BBC Children in Need show, about one the Rainbow Trust Family Support Workers, the wonderful Sean and this gives a great snapshot of the work the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity does. It's only a short film and you can watch it, below.
