Over the last twelve months employees at our UK/Ireland HQ in Weybridge have been working with and fundraising for, their nominated Charity of the Year; Rainbow Trust Children's Charity, which supports families caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness and on Tuesday 11th July, at an all-employee Afternoon Tea, were delighted to present a cheque for £26,961.00.

Employees have been fundraising, as part of P&G’s ongoing Community Impact programme and reached this impressive total for Rainbow Trust by holding a variety of raffle prize draws, silent auctions, cake and product sales.

At the celebratory get together, representatives from Rainbow Trust had the opportunity to meet and mingle with P&G’s employees including their Management Team and a cheque was presented to Rainbow Trust to mark the end of an amazing year of fundraising.

Tom Moody, General Manager and Vice President of P&G Northern Europe said: “Contributing to the communities where we live and work is as important to us, today, as it was when the Company was founded in 1837 and it’s been an absolute privilege to partner with and fundraise for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity over the past year.”

Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust, says: “It’s really wonderful to celebrate P&G Brooklands’ incredible fundraising. We want to thank them and everyone who donated to Rainbow Trust. We have a care team in Leatherhead which supports local families across Surrey, so this money will really help these families with a seriously ill child receive the vital support we provide.”

Rainbow Trust is a national charity that offers emotional and practical support for the whole family; from their child’s diagnosis, during treatment and, if needed, through bereavement and beyond. It relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and thanks to its generous supporters helps over 2,000 families in England.
