Groups and Clubs

Groups and Clubs support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People

There are lots of groups in our community – Rotary Clubs, Brownies and Guides, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, Lions Clubs, mums and toddler groups, sports clubs, faith groups and many more – all can get involved to support Rainbows. Fundraising together makes it more fun and more people means more ideas too!

Groups raise much needed funds and give many hours of their time to support Rainbows. We rely on these groups to ensure we can continue to be there for our children and young people. 

We’d love to hear your plans and support you further. Why not contact one of the team below to find out how we can help you, including booking a talk to hear about the work of Rainbows and talking about materials we can provide to support your fundraising.

Not sure what you want to do to support Rainbows? Have a read through our Fundraising Guide by clicking here to help you start planning and get in touch as we’d love to share ideas from other supporters.

Here are a few ideas to get you started…

Hold a cake sale or coffee morning…
It could be a cake you’ve baked or one you’ve brought but cake sales are always popular. Asking for donations towards them will all add up!

Quiz night
Everyone loves showing off their knowledge, why not create come healthy competition and organise a quiz night.

Organise a talent show
Everyone has a hidden talent, why not put on a show to showcase these whilst raising funds for Rainbows. 

More Ideas…

  • guess the number of sweets in a jar
  • hold a sports tournament
  • donate your loose change
  • organise a sweepstake
  • take part in a sponsored event together

Have fun, be creative, keep it simple – we’re here to help with resources too!
