Story

We are committed to raising as much money as possible for families needing our help. We are now just £50,000 away from reaching the £1 million mark and we would love our community to help us us get there.

After hearing an interview with Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity’s founder Bernadette Cleary in 1993, myself and the late John Penrose established the Harold Wood Friends Group to support the charity. The group started fundraising when we were offered an empty shop for 3 months, we embraced this opportunity and ran jumble sales in the shop 2 days a week to raise money for Rainbow Trust.

24 years later the shop and friends group are still going strong. We are delighted to have raised an incredible £950,000 to date.

It hardly seems possible that Rainbow Trust has been part of my life for 24 years. I feel fortunate to have made so many generous and true friends since the opening of the shop and I am proud of what we continue to achieve.

Please help us reach our goal to help Rainbow Trust support more families with a seriously ill child in Essex. Your generosity would mean so much to us.

Thank you!
