Robert Hillier, Chairman of Hillier Nurseries and Chris Francis, Director of Hillier Garden Centres and Wholesale, together with Sophie Collins, Partnerships Manager at Rainbow Trust

Hillier Garden Centres and Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity rounded off two years of partnership together with the presentation of a cheque for more than £10,000 at Hillier Garden Centre Horsham.

Rainbow Trust was the charity partner of Hillier Garden Centres throughout 2015-16. Funds were raised through collection boxes at the till points of all 12 Hillier Garden Centres and other activities, such as a special charity Christmas sandwich in restaurants with a donation going to the charity.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides invaluable emotional and practical support for families nationwide who have a seriously ill child. Support is offered 24/7 regardless of diagnosis and for as long as it is needed.

Presenting the cheque, Hillier Chairman Robert Hillier, OBE VMH, said: “We are very pleased to have been able to raise funds to support the Rainbow Trust over the last two year. Hillier and our customers recognise the importance of the work they do to support seriously ill children and their families when then need it most.”
