Community Support from The Melton Building Society

Charity of the Year

The Society’s Charity of the Year is Rainbows 

Rainbows is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, providing vital care and support to families impacted by life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The hospice provides end of life care, symptom management, short breaks and respite care, together with help for parents and siblings through their bereavements.

Rainbows only gets around 15% of their funding from government bodies, so the charity relies on donations to fund the care they give.

Rainbows has 12 beds and aims to provide 1:1 care wherever possible on a needs led basis for all children and young people who use their service. Rainbows is a nurse-led unit with support from a team of doctors with expertise in children’s palliative and end of life care and symptom management.

Our branches and Principal Office are fund raising throughout the year with raffles, book and cake sales and dress down days.  Please give us your support!
