Our charity partner is local charity Seashell Trust
The Seashell Trust is located within a 10-minute drive from our office. They are dedicated to providing a creative, happy and secure environment for children and young people with complex and severe learning disabilities which include little or no language abilities.
With the expertise of their specialist teachers, care staff, onsite therapy team, assistive technologists, swimming teachers and sports coaches, the students learn how to express themselves, engage with the world around them, become more independent and live safe, creative and fulfilling lives.
We raise money for The Seashell Trust throughout the year. Just last year we walked as a team for 25 miles over 12 hours to complete the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge. We have raced 10km to complete the Great Manchester run, baked countless cakes and competed in pumpkin carving challenges!
It’s not just about fundraising either, Sapphire has helped The Seashell Trust to place 2 new apprentices by using our apprenticeship levy funds.
Our next activity and details on how to sponsor will be listed here soon!
In December 2020, we proudly took part in Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box project to help provide Christmas presents to children who need it most. Learn more here.
We are delighted to sponsor Together Trust for the 2021 ‘Young People’s Achievement Awards’. The Together Trust Special Award will be presented to a young person or adult who has shown exceptional resilience throughout the pandemic. The sponsorship from Sapphire will be used to purchase a laptop as the awards prize.
