NOTTINGHAM, England – No.4 seed Alison Riske took some time off for her grass court preparations at the Aegon Open Nottingham today to take part in a special meet and greet with patients from the Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
Rainbows is dedicated to meeting the needs of the children and young people from the UK’s East Midlands region who are affected by life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
Riske took part in a Q&A session, spending time with the patients and signing some autographs for them afterwards. She also made her mark on Rainbows’ Handprint Wall, pledging her support for the hospice’s work.
