Today is a very special day for the Rosie's Rainbow Fund family, as it marks what would have been the 18th birthday of a little girl dear to all of our hearts, Ella Czornyj. The daughter of our trustee Helene Czornyj, Ella was also Rosie's good friend--and it was Ella's need for a specialised wheelchair that inspired Rosie to write and put on a musical as a means to raise funds for Ella's chair. This was where the early seeds for what would become Rosie's Rainbow Fund were first sown--and it is through Helene's own experiences as the mum of a child with special needs that our charity's services and supports for special-needs children evolved.
What a fabulous night we had at our Quiz Night fundraiser Friday evening at Foxes Piece School hosted by our wonderful trustees, Helene Czornyj and Bev Crook! Tremendous thanks to all who came out to make the night such a success--a spectacular £1,315.28 was raised for Rosie's Rainbow Fund! Special thanks to our very generous supporter who kindly donated a fantastic Mars chocolate mini-hamper as a prize and to our own Amanda Tibbels for the photos!
