Trinity Sailing Foundation boosted by Community Plus donation from Santander Foundation
Trinity is delighted to announce it has received a £5,000 grant from the Santander Foundation’s Community Plus initiative. The grant has been awarded to support our work with young people by providing funding for essential equipment such as life jackets and waterproof clothing used during sail training courses and sailing holidays.
Toby Russell from Trinity said: We are delighted with the support of the Santander Foundation’s Community Plus initiative and would like to thank the staff from our local branch and their customers for enabling this to happen. The funding will be used to buy new sets of life jackets and waterproof’s which are naturally very important pieces of kit for young people who undertake an offshore sail training course. Its great news that local people have been able to back a local charity, and over the following years this funding will help thousands of young people”.
Elaine Anscombe at Santander’s Brixham branch said: “Community Plus allows our staff and customers to nominate local charities that are most in need of assistance. We are delighted to be supporting Trinity and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people.”
