We recognise the important role Trinity plays in supporting some of the most vulnerable members of society and will be fundraising throughout the year to help them continue to do so. As well as hosting our own in-house fundraising events and supporting those run by Trinity, we will also be volunteering our services throughout the year, with each member of our team able to use a paid volunteer day.”
