Legacy Rainbow House, the Lancashire charity which works ith children with acquired brain injuries, multiple injuries and complex health issues, has received a cash boost of £1,819.72 from Furness Building Society.

The payment represents the annual donation made under its affinity account partnership with the building society.

The Furness has offices in Lancaster as well as Preston, Barrow, Dalton in Furness, Grange over Sands, Millom, Bolton, Poulton, Liverpool, Ulverston and Kendal.

The latest payment was handed over last week at their premises and pictured are Ian Quayle, partnerships and affinities manager for Furness Building Society and Serena Hainsworth, corporate relations officer.

Ian said: “The ‘You Save – We Give’ principle of the accounts means that supporters don’t contribute any of their own money – that remains safe in their own easy access account earning interest. We make a payment from our own funds based on the average total balances during the year, so the more supporters save, the more we pay to help with the valuable work being carried out by Legacy Rainbow House.”

Serena added: “We have to raise £1m per year to continue to offer support to the children and young people with disabilities who come to us for services. The donation from Furness Building Society will help towards these costs.”
