Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. 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.

I run a totally free jazz website and I wanted to contribute and support a worthwhile charity. After looking around for a charity to support for a long time I came across Rainbows and didn't actually know that they cover the Northants area as they are located in Loughborough. I watched a video of Charlotte singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and my heart melted. I have 4 grown up children with 7 lovely grandchildren. They are all healthy and well and they bring my wife and me so much joy.

I could not comprehend or start to understand the way the parents of the children at Rainbows must feel and I thank my lucky stars that we have never had to endure these enormous burdens of having a severely ill or terminally ill child.

I simply wanted to do something to help and as I was planning to try and start a Jazz Festival for Northampton, I thought that it would be a great idea if I could combine the two. A Jazz Festival for Northampton that raised funds for one of the most worthy causes that I could think of, children!

I am now devoting the entire Festival to Rainbows and I hope that it will raise funds and continue every year from now on. I have also decided to devote the website www.northantsjazz.co.uk to Rainbows in the future.

Please give generously as these children need our help and support and Rainbows need funds to continue to give support to these children and their families.
