Agency to do­nate slice of sale fee to char­ity


Uxbridge Gazette - - UXBRIDGE PROPERTY -

AS part of Lakin & Co’s on­go­ing com­mit­ment to sup­port lo­cal char­i­ties, the firm has an­nounced that for each prop­erty it sells it will do­nate £100 of its sales fee to the Rain­bow Trust Chil­dren’s Char­ity.

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously sup­ported the char­ity with fundrais­ing, the team at Lakin & Co firmly be­lieves in the ex­cel­lent and worth­while work the char­ity car­ries out, so be­gan look­ing for other ways in or­der to sup­port them.

Rain­bow Trust Chil­dren’s Char­ity pro­vide be­spoke emo­tional and prac­ti­cal sup­port to fam­i­lies who have a child with a life-threat­en­ing or ter­mi­nal ill­ness.

Its fam­ily sup­port work­ers pro­vide a life­line to these fam­i­lies and chil­dren, bring­ing sup­port and help to fam­i­lies who so des­per­ately need it at home, in hos­pi­tal, and in the com­mu­nity.

Each fam­ily is des­ig­nated a fam­ily sup­port worker who will help the whole fam­ily, in­clud­ing the sick child, par­ents, car­ers, broth­ers, sis­ters, and grand­par­ents.

That one sup­port worker helps the fam­ily emo­tion­ally as they nav­i­gate through a new life they never imag­ined they’d ever face. Their sup­port worker also helps with the prac­ti­cal­i­ties of tak­ing care of a sick child as well as sib­lings, while try­ing to keep life as nor­mal as pos­si­ble.

When asked why they look for­ward to Rain­bow Trust vis­it­ing their sick brother twice a week, one child sim­ply an­swered: “Be­cause it makes Mummy smile again.”

Rain­bow Trust sup­ports more than 2,200 fam­i­lies through­out the coun­try in their great­est time of need. There is no ded­i­cated gov­ern­ment fund­ing for chil­dren’s so­cial pal­lia­tive care – the el­e­ment of sup­port which can of­ten be the dif­fer­ence be­tween a par­ent cop­ing, or not.

Rain­bow Trust can, and does, help fam­i­lies cope. The only thing that stops it help­ing more fam­i­lies is a lack of fund­ing.

The char­ity does not charge fam­i­lies for its ser­vices. But thanks to its sup­port, fam­i­lies are bet­ter able to cope, and can face the fu­ture what­ever it may hold.
