Categories: Care, Featured, and People & Places.

Celebrities have come together to help Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People in the East Midlands create a video busting myths about children’s hospices.

Famous faces including Coronation Street actor Charlie De Melo, Strictly legend Len Goodman and ex-England footballer Stuart Pearce have teamed up with Rainbows Hospice to make the special film as part of the charity’s 25th birthday celebrations this year.

The video is already proving to be a huge hit online, being shared by other hospices across the UK, as well as families who use their services.

Jo Sims, Rainbows Associate Director of Care at Rainbows, said: “There are so many misconceptions out there as to what a children’s hospice is actually like. We hear all sorts of myths about the hospice. Some of our families are wary of accessing our services because of the fear of the unknown, but as soon as they walk through the doors, they say it is not at all what they expected.

“While yes, we are always dealing with sensitive and sad situations, we go above and beyond to ensure our children, young people and their families create memories. It is about living life in the time they have left, whether that is hours or years. We aim to fulfil their wishes while providing the best care for the whole family.”
