Following the success of the Trinity Triple Challenge, which raised £20,576 for three local charities last year, Trinity is planning to take up the mission again in 2014 and extend it by including overseas venues. The Triple Challenge is an integral part of Trinity’s CSR values called ‘It’s not what you give it’s how you live’.
Tracy Winsworth, Commercial Director at Trinity said, “Last year, we set aside a weekend in March when the each member of the team visited hotels and meeting venues in a different area of the UK. In the space of two days, every one of the staff had to report on 20 different venues. We stayed overnight at some, dined at others and called in on many more in between. This year we are developing our adventure by visiting destinations in Europe too.”
This ties in with Destination Champion programme, where members of staff become a specialist in a city or region, carry out site visits and work with the hotels and venues to give first-hand advice to clients, as well as providing advice about the logistics and suitability for events.
The next Triple Challenge activity will take place in July and each team member will take one weekend to visit 20 venues either in the UK or overseas. Trinity will ask the venues to donate a prize for an online charity auction, which will take place in September.
This year the charities that Trinity is supporting are: The Children’s Air Ambulance - the first and only dedicated helicopter emergency transfer service for seriously ill children and babies; Hospital at Home, offering patients a chance of hospital level care in their own homes in the Peterborough area;
Thorpe Hall, a Sue Ryder hospice providing specialist palliative and respite care for people living with incurable illnesses. The charities were chosen by staff at Trinity’s annual conference.
