Be a friend of the Trust...
As a Registered Charity we constantly seek to provide the highest quality services for our two hundred plus, older and vulnerable residents. We aim to not only to provide safe and secure housing, and care & support, but we also try to improve the quality of life by providing a range of ‘extras’.
For example, the Trust maintains a mini bus (sadly now in need of replacement) and of course we organise a programme of events and outings. Above all we want to make sure that all the Trust’s housing remains up-to-date and attractive for our residents today and for people tomorrow.
The charitable donations or legacies we receive are so important to ensure the continuation of this work and where possible the expansion of the services. Charities like ours can no longer depend upon state help or grants etc.
If you are able to help support our work, and be a friend of the Trust – either by making a donation or even providing a legacy, then you might like to have an informal (without any obligation) conversation with our Chief Executive, Richard Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone on 0121 245 1001.
Remember, leaving a legacy will cost you nothing today, but it will make a real difference to the quality of lives of future older people.
Your financial support will make such a significant difference. Thank you.
