It’s time to dust off your superhero suit, because Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People needs all the heroes it can find.
The charity is encouraging everyone in the East Midlands to get involved with Children’s Hospice Week (18-25 May) by doing something heroic on Friday 25 May.
Patricia Brookes, Rainbows Director of Fundraising, said: “There are many ways people can help us; creative types can go to work or school dressed as superheroes, the more domesticated out there can have a heroic cake sale or there are fundraising ideas on the Children’s Hospice Week page of our website – from a superhero quiz to film nights, there will be something for everyone.”
The Sytner BMW Group in the East Midlands has already pledged to get involved. Steve Gough, Managing Director at the dealership, said: “We are looking forward to Superhero Friday here at Sytner. Our Sytner Superhero convoy will be travelling around our Midlands dealerships in the new MINI Roadster and the MINI Coupé on Friday 25 May collecting money for Rainbows. We will also be holding internal cake sales for our staff and customers to indulge in. Our final stop will be the Rainbows Children's Hospice, where we will hand over a giant cheque of all money raised.”
Superhero Friday is at the end of Children’s Hospice Week, which is the UK’s biggest awareness and fundraising week for children’s hospice services. The week is co-ordinated by national charity Together for Short Lives. Visit www.rainbows.co.uk/hospiceweek for more information.
