Rainy Day Trust

We give direct financial and other help to alleviate the effects of poverty

Charity Registration No. 1170878


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Buying a car for under £300 and then spending 3 days stuck inside, that's a challenge in itself. Then you chuck in 3 other guys and the car has to make it over 1500 miles, the challenge get a whole lot harder!

Starting from the UK we drive across to Belgium in our clapped out car. from there we make our way to Germany, on to Lake Como and the final stretch to Monte Carlo. Challenges along the way and we will all be dressed up!!

In 2014 over 150 cars and 500 people successfully completed the challenge and raised over £100,000 for UK charities. 

We will be raising money for the Rainy day trust.

Sometimes not everything in life goes to plan. You may have an accident, problems with your health or maybe you’re struggling financially – all of which can take its toll on your quality of life and place a burden on you and your family.

The Rainy Day Trust are there to help. They are your rainy day support for when things just aren’t going to plan.

The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry, which includes businesses such as; DIY Shops, Hardware Stores, Builders Merchants, Garden Centres, Cookshops, and all the manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the UK who supply them.

Today, with an estimated one million eligible current and past employees from the home improvement and enhancement industries, the charity is experiencing a steady and disturbing increase in applications for assistance from colleagues who have had their working lives tragically cut short due to the unforeseen diagnosis of debilitating diseases.

The Rainy Day Trust is run by a Board of Trustees representing retailers, suppliers, wholesalers, trade associations and the trade press.

Please donate whatever you can but if you would like to have your company logo on the car then please donate £100.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
