Gelder Charity achieves Charitable Trust status

The charity arm of Lincolnshire-based construction company, Gelder Group, has achieved Charitable Trust status.

Over the course of 32 years in business, Gelder Group has raised a significant amount of money for charitable causes including £33,000 raised to celebrate the companies 25 years in business which was donated to St Barnabas and the Alzheimer’s Society.

More recently, the Group has been focused on supporting its own staff and their endeavours in raising money for charities and following the sudden and sad passing of a member of staff the group has been supporting his family through a financially and emotionally difficult period.

With this in mind the Group decided to set up a charitable fund which could be accessed by staff and families who were in need of financial support through bereavement or ill health.

The trust has now been formally recognised by the Charity commission and a team will be established to run the charity.

A big part of our 20:20 Vision is to champion community initiatives and build strong communities, gaining official charity status will not only help us achieve our Vision, it will enable us to continue to contribute to support our local community going forward,” said CEO Steve Gelder.

“I am absolutely delighted that we now have our own charitable trust.”
