Last week we got to meet Marie Calder from Trident Reach, a charity that supports over 2,000 vulnerable people across the Midlands.
The charity was nominated by Joe McDermott to receive a donation in lieu of sending Christmas Cards. The donation will go towards the charities’ ‘move on’ appeal. Move on packs, consisting of items such as a bedding and kitchen goods, are given to people when leaving the charity’s supported accommodation and going into their own homes.
Malcolm McDermott, Managing Director at McDermotts said: “We are delighted to be supporting the community through the work of Trident Reach in the Midlands area. Our donation towards the ‘move on packs’ will give those in need a helping hand as they take the first steps in setting up their new home.”
Marie Calder, Customer Engagement Officer at Trident Reach said: “We would like to thank the extreme generosity of the team at McDermotts for this donation as it will go onto help many people moving into their own homes. It really is also a testament to the amazing work our frontline staff do that today a donation is being made by someone who learnt of our work from their family member, who worked in our services many years ago.”
