TRUST: Plan a picnic to help charity

editorial image

Now that the summer holidays are here, parents and grandparents everywhere are hunting out activities to keep the children occupied.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity has launched a fun, simple, summer activity called the Summertime Picnic.

The idea is straightforward – host a picnic and ask friends and family to make a donation to the Rainbow Trust. It can be a picnic in the garden, the park, or even inside on a carpet.

It is about enjoying quality time with your family, and Rainbow Trust understands just how precious time can be as we support families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness.

We match families with a Family Support Worker, who provides emotional and practical support amid the chaos of medicines, hospitals and endless appointments.

Rainbow Trust has a free, online Picnic Pack, as well as ideas, recipes and games.
