TRUST: Plan a picnic for charity

editorial image

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

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 Rainbow Trust.

It can be a picnic in the garden, the park or even inside on a carpet, weather depending.

The Summertime Picnic 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 for a wonderful afternoon with friends and families.

Just visit to start planning yours.
