'Where's it Bin' campaign continues

Have you met Barry, Bertie and Betty yet?

They're the 3 bins who make up our 'Where's it Bin?' Campaign. Yes, we named them!

Since we started the campaign last September, we've raised over £7,500 just from clothing, toys and other saleable items that people didn't want. They've been all around the East Midlands and in January they were treated to a stay at Nottingham Forest Football Club!

Luckily for us, Parkway Volkswagen Van Centre in Leicester called to ask how they could get involved and support Rainbows. Funny you should ask, we said!

So many do-ho-ho-nations!


We were kept really busy in the lead up to Christmas and it was mostly dealing with companies who had gone out of their way to organise present donations for the children at Rainbows.
