Heartbeat Under The Hearts
Why did we plan the event?
"This is a good question we have been asked many times and the truth is, HeartbeatUTH was going to be a one off as we both wanted to give back to a charity that's helped us both. But then we got together and thought we could help more charities out there."
Rainbow Trust's Aim
Being told that your childis is so seriously ill that they might die is something no parent ever wishes to hear. Nobody knows how they would react or how they would cope. And in this new world in which families find themselves, everyday life has to continue. This year we supported more families than continue. This year we supported more families than ever before through our eight care teams, read how we helped families cope in our latest impact report: Impact Report. Every family in the UK who had a child with a life threatening illness should get the support they need.
Our plans are to:
- Ensure high quality service and support for families
- Extend our range and scope of services to families
- Increase our influence and reputation as a 'trusted voice'
- Raise more funds to ensure we can maintain support for families
- Increase public awareness
- We are committed to meeting increasing demand from families by growing our existing family support teams. We will also create a feasibility model for expanding to new locations in the future
Our Aim for the 2020 event
Our aim is to raise £500 for rainbow trust to help with the cost. As there's an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care. Not only are we supporting the families but also the people who work for this amazing charity
Reviews from previous truckers who have attended:
Me and YamYam would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who turned up for the first ever event of Heartbeat UTH. We're looking forward to 2019 event and to see the support from everyone again.
Apart from the lack of trucks that didn't turn up at truckfest after booking slots, I'd say the actual convoy went rather smoothly and enjoyed my time working with you guys
I really enjoyed it!
