What is the Superdraw?
The Superdraw, plays a crucial part in raising the necessary funds needed to keep our hospice running each year, and, on average, raises around £50,000 each year... with a fantastic jackpot prize of £3,000 up for grabs for one lucky winner!
Why play the Superdraw?
By playing the Supderdraw, you can help us be here for more than 450 children and young people with life-limiting illnesses, children like Rae.
Tragically when Rae was nine-months-old, her father was killed in an attack. He was just 34. Rae was Tanya's fourth child and Tanya says: "I went in to robotic mode. I believe that if that hadn’t have happened, I may have picked up on Rae’s condition sooner.
"But I started noticing the small things. She wasn’t sitting, crawling or climbing. One day, I realised she wasn’t pushing with her legs. We were referred to Great Ormond Street Hospital and three days before her second birthday, Rae was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, a muscle wasting disease.
"It felt like I had fallen into a tunnel. Everything seemed hollow. We were travelling on the tube and it was rush hour but everything just seemed so quiet. I had to tell everyone that Rae was life-limited, which was really hard. I felt like it was another stage of grieving."
"At Rainbows, Rae, who is now 12, just loves the Hydrotherapy Pool and she loves going in The Den to play on the computers. For her, Rainbows is also a place where she doesn’t feel like an outsider.
Generally, Rae doesn’t like going out, she says she is in the way as people try to get around her big wheelchair as well as staring. For a parent of a disabled child, thank heavens for places like Rainbows. Without the hospice we have nothing to look forward to.
I am entrusting the health and care of my child in the care of someone else and I am happy to leave Rae there knowing she is going to be very, very well looked after."
