 New stretch target

Any extra pledges will go towards supporting NHS workers, frontline staff and carers across our country. 

Rachel, a physiotherapist at Southport Hospital, thought she would keep up the positivity with her NHS colleagues by giving everyone a rainbow badge and a positive message! At a time when incredible people are putting themselves at risk to keep us all safe and well, it was so good to see people making those around them smile!!

We shared this on social media and were inundated with requests for badges! (You can see our original post at www.facebook.com/happysmilesblog.) So, inspired by Rachel's efforts, we are going to raise money to buy and send as many rainbow badges as possible to staff on the frontline and those providing care to people across communities!

All badge orders will be organised by our team of Inclusion Champions - young adults with disabilities who show what people CAN do! We will work as hard as possible to get your badge(s) out to you as soon as we can. 

You might just want to donate but we will be in touch with you to ask where you want your badge(s) sending to - so keep an eye out on your emails :) 

Let's spread some positivity - keep smiling!

THANK YOU to all our NHS Heroes! YOU CAN DO THIS!
