Hydrotherapy Pool – Target £10k
Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 Rainbows opened their doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most. And now more than ever, Rainbows need our help to keep on bringing care and happiness to our children and families. This is a unique opportunity to help raise funds to finance the running costs for a Hydrotherapy pool for 16 months.
As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can find care and support. Our incredible team of people help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end.
There are many known benefits and uses of a Hydrotherapy pool. Rainbows will be providing the pool for children who are in severe muscular pain, neurodegenerative diseases and various illnesses. The pool will help relieve pain, reduce muscle spasm and strengthen weakened muscles however the list of benefits does not stop there. There are members within Riders of Shaam who have had first-hand experiences using a hydrotherapy pool for their children and have mentioned ‘it makes a world of difference’.
