Making the most of your extra hour
WHEN the clocks go back this Sunday, many people will enjoy curling up under their duvet for a little longer, before the pressures of normal hectic life resumes.
Time is incredibly precious for us all, but especially for those families who are caring for a child with a serious illness. For these families, every minute matters even more and that is why Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity is calling on the public to make the most of their extra hour this autumn.
The charity’s Big Hour Campaign is encouraging people to use their extra hour wisely when the clocks go back, to either donate an hour of their salary through its quick online ‘ wage exchange’ or organise a simple hour- long fundraiser.
An hour might not seem very much, but to the 2,500 families that we support, who do not know if their child will get better, 60 precious minutes makes the world of difference.
