A glimpse into the future for open day visitors

RainbowsVisitors to our East Midlands children’s hospice, Rainbows, will be able to glimpse the future plans for extending the hospice and its facilities.

The Rainbows ‘Building for the Future’ appeal aims to raise the £4 million needed to extend the hospice. The extension will provide more professional facilities and extra bedrooms for our life-limited children and young people. Visitors who attend the open day on 20th September will be able to see a scale model of the building plans and talk to staff about what the project will mean to the people that use the services.

A scale model of how Rainbows will look was kindly constructed by students at De Montfort university of Leicester. It shows what each part of the extension will do. Dana Simons, Appeal Manager for Rainbows said “Building for the Future really is a major project for us. We are excited to have the opportunity to show local people our plans during the open day. This project means so much to Rainbows and we can’t wait until everything is completed.”

Apart from seeing the future plans, guests can walk around the beautiful gardens and enjoy stands including: a tombola, Rainbows’ shop, cakes, garden furniture, plants, refreshments and a barbeque. Everyone is welcome to come along on the 20th September. You can turn up at Lark Rise, Loughborough at any time between 10am and 3.30pm.
