Mootilda was designed by Weymouth artist Vikki Gibson at the Weymouth Art Asylum. Siblings from families supported by Rainbow Trust painted multi-coloured hand prints on one side, representing the charity’s support of children and families. The other side depicts a magical landscape of fields, flowers, trees and the sun in vibrant colours of the rainbow. The design was intended to be fun, optimistic and hopeful even when things don’t go according to plan.
Leatherhead based commercial aerospace firm, GA Telesis, is sponsoring the Rainbow Trust cow and proceeds from its sale will support families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
Rainbow Trust is a national charity which offers emotional and practical support for the whole family; from their child’s diagnosis, during treatment and, if needed, through bereavement and beyond. It relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and thanks to its generous supporters helps over 2,000 families in England.
