Robyn's Rainbows

Recently we've been talking about fundraising, another way to donate is through our JustGiving page that we set up to collect money specifically for our Robyn's Rainbows fund.

This is an initiative set up by LLTGL after the death of our special friend Robyn Tainty, who lost her battle for life whilst waiting for a double lung transplant in September 2007, aged just 24. Before her death Robyn was sent a balloon as a beacon of hope. Putting a smile on somebody's face is important, especially when there isn't much to smile about - and LLTGL continue to fund this project.

Following nominations from the public, Live Life Then Give Life sends struggling members of the transplant community a small beacon of hope in the form of a balloon, to let them know they are being thought of. The aim is to create a rainbow on the darkest days for those in need; to remind them that they are not alone and that sunshine might be just about to break through...even just to bring a smile to their face.

It's simple. By raising money and raising awareness! Just £12 will allow us send a Robyn's Rainbow to someone in need. We want to be able to support as many people as possible and to keep them smiling whilst they fight and hope, waiting for the call that if it comes, will change their life. Robyn’s Rainbows is dedicated to Robyn and the rainbows she brought into other people’s lives...just by being there.

Here are a few examples of Robyn's Rainbows that we have sent:
