For the Bowls Year 2020-21, Club Captains Sue and Derek have chosen the Rainbow Trust Charity.
This charity supports families with seriously ill children, and last year they helped over 2,500 such families.
They support the whole family including parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters and grandparents. Support is hugely varied and depends on the needs of the family. It can include:
• Listening to families’ fears and anxieties; • Explaining illnesses, diagnoses, and treatments; • Staying with the seriously ill child during hospital stays to give parents a break; • Driving families to medical appointments and siblings to school to help save time and money; • Organising fun activities to help sick children, their brothers and sisters; • Support through bereavement and grief.
We hope all members will support this very worthwhile cause.
