We are proud to announce our charitable support for Rainbows hospice for children and young people.
Through their hospice in Loughborough, Leicestershire, Rainbows provide respite, palliative and end of life care to life-limited and terminally ill children and young people (from birth to 30 years of age) from across the East Midlands, while also providing support for their parents and siblings. They are the only hospice of their kind in the region. Thanks to their dedicated team of nurses and therapists, Rainbows provide round the clock care; meaning families don’t have to worry about the medical needs of their child and can instead focus purely on being together and creating lasting memories in a safe environment. Rainbows only receives a small amount of statutory funding and relies almost entirely on the generosity of companies and individuals from across the region to continue to provide the care and support for the families who need it most.
Church Pharmacy is supporting Rainbows by volunteering as part of their telephone team and by participating in fund raising activities.

Rainbows Hospice: Continuous Support

Skydiving for Rainbows
The Church Pharmacy staff, with the support of clients, suppliers, family and friends raised over £2,000.00 through the charity sky dive for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. The brave staff members made their way to Langar airfield and jumped out of a plane, 13500 ft off the ground, free-falling at over 120mph! Check our charity page in the future for more exciting fund raising events.
Where's It Bin Challenge
We took part in the “Where’s It Bin” challenge where everyone in the company was encouraged to donate items and place them in either Betty, Bertie, or Barry (yes the bins have names). This was done to help Rainbows collect much needed stock for their shops. The income generated helps Rainbows provide vital care and support for children with terminal and life limiting conditions from across East Midlands, as well as their families.
