Forest captain becomes Honorary Ambassador for Rainbows

We are delighted to announce Nottingham Forest captain Chris Cohen as our newest Honorary Ambassador.

Last year, Chris and his wife, Jess, made a special trip to see us. They were so moved by the children and young people they met, they wanted to get on board and do more for Rainbows.

As a Rainbows Honorary Ambassador, Chris will support and help to raise our profile. Chris and Jess have already donated more than £3,000 to us which was raised from wedding favours and donations last June.

Chris said: “When we visited Rainbows, we were struck by what an incredible place it is. It was overwhelming, yet so inspiring, and the children and young people who benefit from the services offered are just fantastic. We met some amazing people at Rainbows and Jess and I want to do all we can to help raise awareness of this fantastic charity and support the children, young people and their families.”

Patricia Brookes, Director of Fundraising at Rainbows, added: “To have Chris on board is very exciting and we are extremely happy that he has pledged his support to us. Chris is very popular in the Nottinghamshire area and we know his support will be invaluable to Rainbows. We are very grateful to all of our patrons and ambassadors for the wonderful work they do for Rainbows.”
