AS we draw near to the clocks going back, I can’t help but think how precious time is.

When my two-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia, I desperately tried to cling on to every hour, afraid of what the future might bring.

Throughout everything my family has been through, one charity understood. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity truly know how to support families who are caring for a seriously ill child.

This October, as my daughter celebrates over five years of being cancer free, please support Rainbow Trust’s ‘Big Hour Campaign’ to make the most of your extra hour when the clocks go back, by donating an hour of your wages, or holding a 60-minute fundraiser. Visit
