National Salvage Group is delighted to have raised over £1,460.00 on Valentine’s Day to support the insurance claims industry initiative – ‘ILC Day 2019’ – in aid of the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.
‘Wear it Red’, occurring on February 14th – the reddest day in the calendar, saw the head office team and members across the country sport a range of red attire at work. Fund raising activities included an ‘All You Can Eat’ buffet lunch and Valentine’s inspired homemade cake sales.
The monies raised by National Salvage Group can be used to pay for 63 hours of emotional and practical support to families caring for a terminally ill child. It could fund a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker to provide one hour of support every week for six months for two separate families in need and additionally cover the cost of a Bereavement Support Specialist at the Charity for over two months.
Neil Joslin, Chief Operating Officer said: “We were thrilled to get behind this initiative once again this year and to support such a fantastic charity. Everyone enjoyed the day and I would like to thank the head office team and all the members who participated and donated to raise such a great sum of money, which we know will be invaluable to the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.”
Last year’s ILC Day 2018 raised more than £9,000 for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and it is hoped that this year’s total will be even greater.
