The Nelson Trust: Charity Partner of the Year
At Rippl, we believe in making waves in everything we do. Whilst we’re experts in all things employee engagement, another of our key focuses includes making a positive contribution in our wider communities. We strongly believe in giving back – our ‘Give Back’ programme enables our team to deliver tangible impact by helping both local and national charities to deliver on their mission.
This year, we proudly launched our Charity of the Year partnership with The Nelson Trust to support their vision.
Based in our county of Gloucestershire, The Nelson Trust is built upon a purpose to be a centre of excellence in delivering belief, hope and long-term recovery to lives affected by addiction and multiple disadvantage. With over 38 years’ experience in supporting vulnerable people with complex needs, they provide women’s community services and residential rehabilitation treatment programmes, as well as partner with local businesses to practically enable individuals to become self-sustaining in life, education and work. Last year, The Nelson Trust helped over 3,300 women in the South West and Wales access treatment and residential services.
As charity partner, Rippl’s brilliant team are able to get involved in The Nelson Trust’s fundraising activities, volunteer opportunities, events, challenges and more throughout the year and make hands-on impact in supporting their mission.
One recent key milestone was The Nelson Trust’s 10th Anniversary Golf Day – an annual fundraiser event with sponsorship opportunities for local and national businesses that enable all proceeds to support The Nelson Trust’s in making their mission a reality.
We were proudly joined alongside other sponsors including Cotswold Cheltenham BMW, Enterprise Rent a Car and Lister Unified Communications and, together, raised £17,000.
Some wider initiatives of our partnership will include informal skills and learning sessions from Rippl’s team through mini-mentoring across The Nelson Trust’s network, alongside resource donation as part of the Winter Campaign including donating food, sanitary products and clothes.
We’re delighted to be playing an active role in supporting The Nelson Trust deliver their mission and watch our Give Back programme come to life.
“To be Charity Partner of The Nelson Trust this year provides Rippl with a meaningful and impactful opportunity to make a real difference, in both our local and regional community. The Nelson Trust’s purpose is something that really inspired our team to proactively contribute to – I look forward to seeing the impact Rippl can deliver to The Nelson Trust over future months.” – Nadia DiLuzio, HR Director, Rippl
