Boundary Mill in Grantham has raised an incredible total of more than £14,500, for their charity of the year Rainbows Children’s Hospice.

During the year the store has sold a range of Rainbows merchandise, staff have dressed up in onesies and made cakes, and former employee and guitarist Charlie Russel organised two fund-raising musical evenings hosted at the Atrium free of charge.

Katie Baxter, head of community and events at Rainbows, said: “It is staggering and wonderful how much they’ve raised. The money will go towards supporting the poorliest children in the East Midlands, and help to create some happy times and memories.”

She added: “It will also help to raise the profile of the hospice, which supports families from this area and all across the East Midlands.”

General manager at Boundary Mill, Veronica Wellman, said: “Staff vote for their charity of the year and this is such an emotive cause. We have had a fantastic time supporting Rainbows, and the staff have put a lot of effort into events, going over and above with their fund-raising.

“Hopefully it will bring a little bit of light to those families Rainbows supports.”
