Earlier this month I was invited to a presentation evening1 by Newark Castle Rotary Club. Timico had made a contribution to a sponsored walk held in aid of the Rainbows Children’s Hospice.
It’s totally humbling when you look at the effort put in by some to help others. In this case there are two groups to mention. Firstly the enthusiasm with which the folk at the Rotary Club put their hands up to volunteer. We would all do well to imitate it.
Secondly is the work done by the people at Rainbows. The mental strength and sheer goodness needed to work in such an environment is massive. It’s only when you have (four) healthy kids of your own that you begin to appreciate how lucky you are.
Rainbows helps families get through really difficult times and deserve your support. I’ll repeat the link here in case you want to take a look at what they do and maybe even make a small donation.
1I thought it was going to be a finger buffet and knowing how easy it is to eat too much at these gigs and being on a health kick I had dinner before I went. Turns out the buffet was an enormous meal with a traditional British treacle sponge pudding and custard for afters. Of course it would have been rude to sit there not eating. The things I have to do in the name of charity/work/call it what you like.
