As a biggest charity fundraising event, this month we celebrated the return of our annual Rainbows Charity ball.
Held at London’s Grand Dorchester, welcomed back an array of familiar-faces and high-profile celebrities that span the fields of sports, entertainment and business. From the likes of singing sensation Sinitta to Olympic skier Graham Bell and comic legend Mark Dolan, the Champions Team were thrilled to celebrate the incredible work of Rainbows with such a wide range of celebrities and guests.
This year, the theme saw our guests head down to the old smoke for a star studded ‘Night in Hollywood’ where they we provided a night full of great entertainment and fundraising. In keeping with all of our events, guests were invited to participate in a silent auction where they good bid for a wide range of incredible gifts, experiences and signed sporting memorabilia. With all of the proceeds going to Rainbows, we were thrilled that so many people got involved and helped us to support such a fantastic cause.
Providing support to life-limited children, young people and their families, Rainbows is the only charity of its kind in the East Midlands. Over the past two decades, the charity has helped to create lasting memories for all those affected by life-threatening illness.
With only 15% of the charity’s resources coming from government funding, Rainbows relies on the generous support of their donors, patrons, trustees, partners and ambassadors to deliver their services.
Celebrating another successful event, our Managing Director, Matthew Hayes said: “Since day one we have always wanted to support Rainbows in continuing the incredible work that they do".
“Holding the annual ball is not only a great way to bring everyone together, but it also helps to create awareness and raise the vital funds that they need to give the children and their families some well-deserved fun".
“On behalf of everyone here at Champions, we would like to thank all of our guests for coming and giving so generously. So far we have raised over £2.5million for Rainbows and we could not have done it without them.”
