Tomorrow, a fairly dull-looking (though impressively vast) space in Bruntingthorpe Airfield’s famous Vulcan bomber hanger will be transformed into a sea of colour – all the colours of the rainbow – as Rainbows Children’s Hospice hope to create the world’s biggest rainbow.

For the last few months, the Loughborough-based charity has been collecting rainbow selfie postcards (including one from charity patron David Walliams) from thousands of supporters, and tomorrow a team of more than 40 volunteers will begin creating a gigantic piece of art in a world record-breaking attempt.

Rainbows Hangar

The event is the culmination of the charity’s 20th anniversary celebrations, and will attempt to create a Guinness World Record and raise more much-needed funds to help support the children, young people and families from around the East Midlands who use Rainbows.

The entire event will be streamed on Youtube, and we have a live feed below:

If you wish to donate to Rainbows while you watch them hard at work, you can head to their JustGiving page or text CARE502 to 70070 to donate £2.
