BSS Industrial have raised an impressive £50,000 for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, reaching the target they set themselves last year. And, following their success, have pledged to raise the same amount over the next 12 months.
The funds meant that 35 children with a life-threatening or terminal disease, and their families were provided with a much needed holiday at one of the Charity’s two respite houses.
Fundraising activities included hiking along the length of Hadrian’s Wall, charity bike rides, an “It’s a Knockout” event and selling badges on trade counters.
Rainbow Trust chief executive Heather Wood said: “The enthusiasm of BSS Industrial staff has been overwhelming. It’s fantastic news that this work will carry on for another year, raising more funds for a very worthy cause. We are very grateful.”
