Buy a truly meaningful gift for a friend or family member and help to brighten short lives.

Our “Gifts that Give” are a collection of alternative virtual gifts, including Music Therapy, Hydrotherapy, the gift of a smile or hours of high quality care and compassion – both in the hospice and out in the community. All you need to do is choose the gift you want to give, and we’ll make the memories. It’s that simple.

The money raised through Gifts that Give will help to fund the care and support that Rainbows provides.

Each Gift that Gives comes with a personalised gift tag and certificate to pass onto your loved one as a gift
