AW support Rainbow Stars charity

AW Repair Group are supporting Rainbow Stars, a charity who support families with children and young adults who have Autism and additional needs in Lincolnshire by fundraising and wearing tie dye rainbow t-shirts.

Rainbow Stars celebrate their 6th Birthday in November and what better way to celebrate in these difficult times than to wear a rainbow.

In lockdown 2.0 Rainbow Stars have managed to stay open under the government guidelines of ‘some venues will be allowed to remain open for specific exempt activities, like childcare and support groups’ along with a Covid-19 risk assessment. Last week the children, young adults and their siblings had the joy of tie dying our donated plain white t-shirts into rainbow masterpieces. A member of Rainbow Stars shared on their social media page, ‘Thank you for a fab time tie dying Jodie, Jane and Tommy. I had a wonderful time. Go Team Rainbow. I really hope AW Repair Group love them’.

One of AW’s Purchase Ledgers, Jodie Wall, is a committee member and volunteer for the charity, “Being able to celebrate the charity’s birthday in this way, being supported by local businesses such as AW who are wearing rainbows is great! It’s even better that our children and young adults of Rainbow Stars have been able to make the t-shirts, they absolutely loved doing it. A huge thank you from us all at Rainbow Stars.”

Andrew Walsh, Founder & CEO commented, “To be able to support a Lincolnshire based charity in the hometown of our headquarters is a testament to our commitment to our local communities. It was great being able to all dress in Rainbow colours, not only to raise money for this marvellous charity, but to raise awareness too.”

AW Repair Group are joined by other Sleaford based businesses including The William Alvey Church of England Primary School to dress in Rainbow Colours on Friday 13th November.
