The Nexus Community Trust is a charitable trust that was established in 2011 to support employee nominated causes and help those charities which have been involved with, and affect the lives of, our people.

During the year, employees were involved in events and activities aimed at raising funds for a range of different charities and causes.

Humanitarian relief relating to the war in Ukraine was, and continues to be, a major focus area. As an immediate response to the initial invasion in February 2022, funds were raised and then donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee – a grouping of leading UK aid charities, including the British Red Cross, Save the Children and Oxfam. There were further fundraising initiatives during the course of the year and also events organised to enable the donation of essential items such as clothing, blankets and toiletries.

There were several other fundraising activities – such as in September, in support of the Youth Adventure Trust, Tamdown took part in the ‘Housebuilder Mountain Challenge’. This involved a 20-mile hike over the three highest peaks in the Peak District.

In March, we relaunched our volunteering scheme which offers employees five days of paid leave per year for community volunteering. Teams and individuals from across the Group have made use of this scheme to provide direct assistance to local charities and worthy causes.
