Amelia's Rainbow (formerly The Amelia-Grace Rainbow Fund) supports children in Dorset with life-limiting, serious chronic and terminal illnesses.
There are currently over 400 children living in Dorset with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. We provide non-means tested grants for children to go on holiday, have a family day out, a new toy or game or lessons such as dancing or swimming. We will look to support anything that the child wants to do so that they and their family can create precious memories.

We also have a Beach Hut on the beautiful South coast and a Holiday Home in Hoburne Holiday Park in New Milton where families and bereaved parents in Dorset can stay and use totally free of charge. We rely solely on donations and fundraising by the local community.
We are very excited to be involved in this large event in our local community and would love for you to support us this year!
If you book a charity place through us we will provide you with :
Online and paper sponsorship forms and a personalised running vest as well as lots of encouragement and supporters cheering you on.
In return we ask that you raise a minimum amount for the charity:
BMF Full Marathon: £300 minimum sponsorship
BMF Half Marathon: £150 minimum sponsorship
BMF 10K: £100 minimum sponsorship
BMF 5K: £60 minimum sponsorship
Junior races: £40 minimum sponsorship
These are Charity assured places. Your registration fee has been absorbed in the minimum sponsorship and by entering you commit to raising the specified minimum amount.
We are also happy to support you if you would like to book your own place and raise money for our charity. In this way there is no minimum sponsorship amount but we will provide you with a running vest and sponsorship pages if required.
