Gatehouse Bank raises over £15,000 for Rainbow Trust
Gatehouse Bank has raised £15,500 for Rainbow Trust, a charity which aims to support families with a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness.

The charity was selected as Gatehouse Bank’s charity partner through an all-staff vote and partners a family with a family support worker who provides practical and emotional support for the whole family.

The support is tailored to each family depending on their needs. This could include driving them to medical appointments, keeping a child company during hospital stays or organizing activities to help sick children and their siblings.

Every £30 raised offers an hour’s practical and emotional support for a family caring for a seriously ill child.

Gatehouse Bank organised various fundraising efforts throughout the year including charity walks and runs, groups of colleagues completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenges and the executive team taking part in the Thames Moonlight 10 Walk.

The firm also facilitated charity raffles and supported the charity’s 72-hour match funding No Family Alone Appeal.


Gatehouse Bank: ‘Proud to support Rainbow Trust’

Charles Haresnape, CEO of Gatehouse Bank, said: “We are proud to have supported a fantastic charity, Rainbow Trust, over the last year, and I am especially pleased to see the dedication colleagues have shown in actively organising their own fundraising efforts.

“Thanks to our colleagues, we collectively have raised £15,500 and hope that our contribution has made a difference to Rainbow Trust and the families they support.”

Elodie Pinn, corporate partnerships fundraiser at Rainbow Trust, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Gatehouse Bank for raising £15,500 in support of Rainbow Trust over the last year. Their efforts raising money and awareness is greatly appreciated, raising enough to support seven families caring for a seriously ill child for a whole year.”
