Since 2010 Trinity has donated to the CRASH “No Christmas card appeal ”. The idea is for Companies to donate their Christmas card budgets to help the homeless in the UK and send an email instead. Last year, CRASH supported 68 projects all over the UK, helping to build a better future for over 7,000 men and women. This year Trinity donated £500 to CRASH our most yet. Trinity also has a tradition of supporting St Luke’s Hospice. We held a Charity Raffle in December and managed to raise £130.40.
On 5th February Trinity hosted a charity networking evening in the prestigious Waterloo Room at the Institute of Directors HQ in Pall Mall. Over 80 people enjoyed an evening of drinks and Indian street food along with a charity auction and raffle. Thanks to our wonderful suppliers we had prizes ranging from an I Pad Mini, TV, Botox treatment and a week in Lapland and nearly £2000 was raised for Kinoe, a charity supporting street children in India and Nepal.
Our Account’s assistant Karen Young’s daughter Emma has volunteered as a midwife for a project supporting pregnant women, many with HIV/AIDs in Uganda.

Trinity staff joined residents and managers to celebrate the completion of major internal alterations to their residential home at Nuffield Lodge in Highbury North London. Paul Swift laid on a fish and chip lunch for the elderly folk and thanked them for the patience during the 6 months of building work. Site Manager Graham Sturgess and carpenter Paul Elsworth joined the celebration along with a visit from chairman Colin Brunt. The work involved many technical challenges as structural alterations and additional foundations where required to make the changes to the layout of the building. All this work was carried out whilst the building was fully occupied. The staff and residents were sad to see our team depart despite all the disruption and warm tributes were made to both Graham and Paul who had become part of the family during the last 6 months.
Trinity is refurbishing a 4 storey Victorian house in the heart of historic Greenwich. The Museum of London have been particularly interested in the site, as there was potential for Medieval remains to be discovered whilst we were carrying out excavations to the rear of the property. An archaeology expert from the Museum of London was visiting on an almost daily basis, but unfortunately nothing more than some pieces of broken medieval pottery and animal bones were discovered. The reconfiguration and refurbishment of a ground floor and basement restaurant, and apartments on the upper floors has almost been completed, with a value of £470 000.
We were delighted to receive National runner up award by Recofloor in recognition of our efforts to recycle used and surplus vinyl flooring. All our staff work together to separate vinyl flooring which is returned to our yard where it is segregated and placed in special bags for collection. We worked very hard to set this scheme up and are proud to have won this award alongside some of the UK’s largest building contractors.
