A RAINBOW ball has raised thousands to help bereaved children.
Following the event at the Hilton hotel in Warwick, the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People presented more than £15,000 to The Myton Hospices.
The money will fund bereavement support sessions for children affected by the death of a family member. The sessions enable children to meet others who are bereaved and help children through their loss.
Myton fundraiser Rachael Stevens said: “The Myton Hospices wants to say a massive thank you to Hilton Warwick for raising such a fantastic amount.
“The donation is enough to fund 100 children’s bereavement counselling sessions, so the money the staff and guests at the Hilton raised will go a long way to making sure we can continue providing our services to people in Coventry and Warwickshire.”
