Leicester’s MAF supports Rainbows

A Leicestershire company which specialises in fire risk assessments is hoping to raise thousands of pounds for Rainbows.

Michael A Fox Associates (MAF Associates), based in Whetstone, has chosen our charity as its corporate partner for the next 12 months. For every order received, MAF will donate £10 to our hospice. 

Managing Director Mike Fox has also pledged £1,000 to kick-start the partnership. He said: “Our annual chosen charity is decided upon by our valued team. We love to put ourselves in the shoes of others and help where we can. 

“Supporting a charity is generally due to personal experience and this is the case for MAF. One of our team has been heavily involved in supporting the charity for many years. When asked why they supported Rainbows they said ‘when you think of visiting a hospice, you think of sadness but it is the opposite at Rainbows. There are smiles everywhere and the varied activities they have to help make memories make such a difference to those who need their help.’ MAF is doing extremely well as a business and passing some of that success on to Rainbows is our aim for the next year.”

Emily Wright, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser at Rainbows, added: “The support of MAF Associates is hugely important to us all at Rainbows and we thank them for choosing to support us. The Covid-19 crisis has meant our funding is down and we need the support of businesses and organisations now more than ever. On behalf of everyone at Rainbows, I would like to thank MAF for helping us to continue to help those families who need us the most.”
