Over the past 25 years Rainbows Hospice has cared for thousands of children and families in Leicestershire, now you can join them on Saturday 21 September to celebrate their anniversary at an open fun day.

They will be opening their doors to the community to showcase their facilities, as well as hosting a BBQ, Bake Off competition and entertainment.

Guests can take a tour following the 25 years of Rainbows and listen to ‘Tent Talks’ from staff about our vital work. It’s a wonderful opportunity to find out just how much work this charity has done for families across Leicestershire.

Fancy yourself as a future Bake Off star? Visitors are encouraged to bring along their culinary creations and the contest will be judged by celebrity baker Fiona Cairns and former cricketer Matthew Hoggard, who are both Patrons of the charity. Fiona, who shot to fame after bakery Fiona Cairns Ltd was commissioned to make the royal wedding cake for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will also be creating a special birthday cake masterpiece for visitors.

On the day visitors can also enjoy a BBQ and there will be music from 13-year-old CBBC star Eva Rose Finnemore.

Rainbows CEO Dee Sissons welcomed people in the East Midlands to the event. “Come and experience Rainbows through the eyes of our children, young people and their families,” she said. 

“As well as it being a very special birthday for us, our Open Day is about celebrating the incredible work that happens at Rainbows, none of which would have been possible without the amazing help that we have received from our supporters in the East Midlands over the last 25 years.

The event takes place at Rainbows Hospice, Lark Rise, Loughborough from 10.30am – 3pm. For more information, visit rainbows.co.uk/openday
