It’s hard not to notice an abundance of Easter eggs lining shop aisles as families (mine included) prepare for a happy Easter celebration together.
I count myself incredibly lucky though – because for thousands of families caring for a life threatened or terminally ill child, the luxury of family time together is one they can’t take for granted.
I am a proud supporter of Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity that supports over 2,000 families in England caring for a seriously ill child. This Easter, Rainbow Trust’s network of Family Support Workers will be doing everything they can to help make life a little easier for these families by providing emotional and practical support.
It might be helping families be together by transporting them to hospital, or supporting brothers and sisters to mark Easter by making cards and cakes. It could be giving a few precious hours of respite to parents so they can be with their other children away from medicines, doctors and hospitals.
Please spare a thought for these families this Easter and, if you can, donate to Rainbow Trust, to help support even more families as they face their worst nightmare. Just visit rainbowtrust.org.uk/donate or text RAIN18 £3 to 70070 to make a £3 donation*
