Let’s all take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate all our colleagues working in branches raising money for and also those who are organising events to raise money for The Alex Timpson Trust.

It is a really special moment when you can make someone put their hard earned money into a charity tin! Whether this is by telling the customer about the incredible things we do and what we support or if it’s by taking the time doing a free job and suggesting they pop what they can into the tin, either way, thank you.

As most of you will know, we provide free holiday homes for foster families and have recently sent out the allocations, here are just some of the amazing responses we have had from those who have been successful:

“I want to take the time to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for this holiday. After a really difficult week this has completely wowed and cheered us! We can’t wait to tell the kids closer to the time! Your support of foster carers is so appreciated, thank you all!”

“My little boy wrote the application if you remember. What you did not know was that he has not written anything for 3 years. He has not been in mainstream education as he is anxious about getting things wrong and feels immense shame. Letters and handwriting is his hardest. We have been able to give him praise for his writing winning us a holiday, so thank you for the confidence boost.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our little family to receive a holiday, the children are very excited. I am sure they will make magical memories.”

We are able to continue to provide these holiday homes due to you and your efforts, thank you.

This week you have raised £8,366.66


We also get involved with local schools, currently some of our colleagues in Timpson House are due to start mentoring at a local school, this is just an hour or so a week but what that means to that young person is invaluable.
