Service communications experts at soh are using 29th of Feb to support the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and are calling on organisations to support staff who would like to use the leap year extra day for a good cause

soh, based in London and the North West, is donating the leap day in February to the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity which provides support to families with a life threatened or terminal illness.

The idea was born when the team at soh realised that every leap year most employees work an extra day. They decided they would use that extra day ‘to do some good’. They’re also calling on other organisations to do the same with the ‘Your Free Day’ campaign.

Fran Fish, Managing Director at soh, commented: “We thought it’d be great if businesses and public sector organisations would actively support and encourage individuals to give something back. Giving employees the chance to do some good because of the extra day created by a leap year seemed the perfect opportunity”.

Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, says: “Finding new ways to raise money and give to charities is becoming increasingly difficult so we were delighted that soh chose Rainbow Trust to benefit from ‘Your Free Day’. The two challenges charities often face is resource and money so to be offered a day of support from experienced professionals will make a big difference.”

Talking about how soh will be working with the charity, Rob Smale, Director of Professional Services at soh, commented: “We’re providing spoken and written communications workshops for the people who do the great work supporting families 24/7. Our team is also helping to raise funds at Rainbow Trust shops in a ‘The Apprentice’ style competition at the Leatherhead and Cheam shops as well as a pop up stall in Mold, North Wales.
