Since 2013, Trinity Event Solutions has raised more than £100,000 for local charities through their Triple Challenge initiative. Their Triple Challenge has gone from strength to strength and on Monday, 18th December, the Stamford-based venue finding and event management company celebrated the success of their 2017 fund raising activity by presenting cheques to Hospital at Home, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Bliss and Animal Helpline. These four charities were chosen by staff earlier in the year as part of Trinity’s on-going CSR programme and in the past they have supported the Air Ambulance Service, the Sue Ryder Hospice, Thorpe Hall and Meeting Industry Meeting Needs.
The Trinity team visited more than 300 hotels and conference venues in July and August 2017, who donated prizes for an online auction, which raised more than £20,000 this year. 263 bidders placed 850 bids on the Trinity Triple Challenge auction website.
Jacqui Kavanagh, MD of Trinity Event Solutions was delighted with the fund-raising and commented: “Trinity’s CSR policy is core to Trinity’s values and way of working. We prefer to call it our ‘Social Responsibility policy’ as it is an instinctive part of the company culture. We are delighted to make a significant contribution to charities that will really make a big difference to their work. This a true partnership with our suppliers and benefits our clients through our team seeing venues first-hand and building up our venue knowledge. This was a huge achievement and I would like to thank all the hotels and venues for supporting us, as well as everyone at Trinity who gave up their time and put a lot of work into making this a success.”
Kellie Charge, Corporate Fundraiser at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices received the cheque on their behalf and said “Support from our corporate partners is highly valued at EACH and we would not be able to continue to support our children, young people and their families without the generosity of businesses like Trinity Event Solutions. We are delighted that Trinity has chosen East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices as one of their charities to benefit from their amazing Trinity Triple Challenge, and the £5,750 donated will enable us to pay for a whole day’s care at our Milton hospice, which is a truly generous gift for which we are most grateful.”
Bliss Chief Executive, Caroline Lee-Davey said “We are so grateful to Trinity Event Solutions and all the staff who took part in this year’s Trinity Triple Challenge to raise money for Bliss. Their support is invaluable in helping us to achieve our ambition to reach every single baby born needing neonatal care in the UK, and their family. We want every baby to benefit from our work, no matter how long they live or how long they spend on a neonatal unit. It is only through the generosity of supporters like Trinity, and its employees, that we can support these poorly babies.”
