National Salvage ‘Wears It Red’

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.  Fundraising activities included an ‘All You Can Eat’ buffet lunch and Valentine’s inspired homemade cake sales.

The monies raised by the 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.

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.
