Whilst financial assistance will always have a significant impact to the trust, it is important to the Board to also offer our own skills and experience. As of December, one of our team will become a Trustee of the Lyme Trust and will provide experience as a Chartered Accountant to provide advice on financial planning and developing key strategies, along with being an ambassador promoting and helping pursue the Trust's charitable objectives.
We would like the support of the Trust to be a company-wide effort that will generate real momentum, therefore we have introduced the 'Reliance Volunteering Programme' in support of The Lyme Trust.
As a company we have valuable assets in our people and teams that can be shared and utilised within the Trust, such as help with marketing, rebranding, business strategies and maintenance.
The company would like to offer all employees 1-day paid leave to spend volunteering with the Trust. This could be for example a volunteering session direct with the Trust or during an activity/event organised by them. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me directly. You will also need the approval of your line manager for your selected volunteering day.
We have Dress Down Fridays with all proceeds going directly to The Lyme Trust.
We hope this has given an overview of our current activities and on-going plans. We welcome your feedback and thank you for your continuing engagement in supporting the charity.
