In February 2018, EEM hosted the 4th annual Building Communities Awards at the East Midlands Conference Centre where £33,000 was raised for Rainbows Children’s Hospice.
On 21 March, members of EEM staff had the privilege of visiting Rainbows to take a tour of the facilities, meet some of the staff and handover the money raised.
Without the support of the EEM network in the form of sponsorship, ticket sales, the donation of auction lots and raffle prizes and additional cash donations we would not have been able to achieve such a wonderful donation for Rainbows. A huge thank you to our headline sponsor, Nationwide Windows & Doors.
David Strudley, CEO of Rainbows said “What an amazing achievement to cap a truly brilliant evening! EEM set a target of £30,000 but raised a staggering £33,000.
“On behalf of the children and families, as well as the staff of Rainbows, heartfelt thanks for a magnificent event and a wonderful example of unstinting support. Thank you”
