Nottingham Colleagues raise hundreds with Rainbows charity day

Colleagues at a Nottingham chartered accountants staged a special Rainbows Day to support our charity.

Page Kirk accountants, based in Gregory Boulevard, has chosen us as its charity of the year for 2022.

Over 40 colleagues have been fundraising since January and there are lots more events to come in the run up to Christmas. Last month, the team staged a dedicated Rainbows Day, which in itself raised £400.

Our mascot Bow Bear was on site surprising staff as they arrived that morning. He also got up to mischief during the day carrying out photocopying and taking over reception.

As well as enjoying Bow’s antics, colleagues held a bake sale, staged a quiz, played games and there was a raffle to win a day’s annual leave. Staff also made donations for their lunch, which was provided by Page Kirk.

James Haywood, Partner at Page Kirk, said: “It was pleasure to hold Rainbows Day at our office. Having chosen Rainbows as our charity of year, it was great to hold a specific event related to the charity that all members of staff could take part in and understand the wonderful work that Rainbows is performing to brighten children’s lives.

“The day itself was a fantastic success with all enjoying themselves and having Bow Bear around with his energetic enthusiasm made the day, especially when he ran down to me waving his arms when I arrived at the office in the morning.

“We are very proud to be supporting Rainbows this year and look forward to the many events that we still have planned in the diary.”

Kirsty Coxon, Corporate Fundraiser at Rainbows, added: “We are thrilled to have Page Kirk on board for 2022 and they have been doing some fabulous things for us. The Rainbows Day, and Bow Bear’s visit was a big hit and it is great to see so many people getting involved.

“We rely on the support of companies like Page Kirk to continue to provide care to more than 300 children and young people with terminal and serious illnesses, including those from Nottinghamshire.”
