Time for a picnic

18 August, 2017

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

This is about enjoying quality time with your family and the trust understands 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. Visit to start planning yours.
