Our charity support work continues in 2023, and our chosen charity, as picked by our clients, for another year is The Trussell Trust!
Who are The Trussell Trust?
“Our vision is for a future without the need for food banks”
The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks, provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
They support these food banks by providing at least three days of nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people referred in crisis (for instance, by advice agencies, GPs, social services, and schools) and support to help people resolve the crises they face.
How Balance has helped / will help the Trussell Trust
This is the third year we are supporting the Trussell Trust, and in 2022, we raised £2,173 for the charity, which we hope to beat in 2023.
These are a few of the ways we support our chosen charities each year:
- Recommendations - For every recommendation for our services we receive from an existing client, we will donate to charity to give something back and pay it forward.
- Events - We organise events throughout the year to raise funds, such as coffee mornings, quiz evenings, and raffles.
- Fundraising - We will participate in any charity-led fundraising initiatives, like sponsored walks or runs and get creative with some of our ideas too.
- Christmas cards – Instead of sending out a card in the post, we donate to charity and send a e-card/video instead – which is better for the planet too.
Keep an eye out for any events and fundraising activities that we get up to this year, and we will keep you posted on the amount we can raise over 2023.
