Fundraising For Rainbows Hospice For Children And Young People

Congratulations to Andy who won the Rainbows gin in our prize draw this week!

We will be doing our usual collection for Rainbows instead of sending Christmas cards this year.

For the last nine years, many of us have decided to save the money that we would otherwise spend on sending Christmas cards to colleagues and contribute instead towards supporting the Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough. The company also supports this program with a corporate donation of £100 to start the fund rolling and each year, your generous donations have resulted in us being able to offer this incredible organisation, contributions of several hundred pounds. Last year’s final total was £450! Enough money to make a real difference.  

Please donate using the SLS Just Giving page:

Thank You
