Mak­ing the most of your ex­tra hour

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

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.

To get in­volved please visit www. rain­bowtrust. org. uk/ big- hour and find out more. Oon­agh Good­man, Direc­tor of Fundrais­ing and Mar­ket­ing, Rain­bow Trust Chil­dren’s Char­ity
