Vote Hamelin Trust!

We have some fantastic news!  Hamelin Trust has been shortlisted by Jewson, a leading UK builders merchants, with the chance to win building materials to help expand our Day Opportunities service.

But there is still a way to go and we need your help!

Vote for Day Opportunities to improve our chances of being chosen to be supported with building materials for our project!

As you may already know, Day Opportunities is a service that provides adults with disabilities the chance to partake in activities where they can learn valuable new skills and gain work experience in a number of areas.  These include furniture restoration, sewing, IT refurbishment, and retail.

We are now planning on expanding this project to give our furniture restoration and IT refurbishment groups dedicated, independent areas, giving those attending more room.  This is a hugely popular service where requests to join are often made, so this expansion will also give more to those who are not already attending this service the chance to get involved.  With this expansion, we will be able to support an extra eight individuals per day!

Voting is quick and easy!  Just follow the steps below:

  • Go to Jewson’s Building Better Communities website by clicking here.
  • Register to vote by signing in and activating your account from the e-mail they send you.
  • Click on Community Project Shortlist and use the drop down menu to filter the results to East of England.
  • We are fourth on the list and the project is called Day Opps 4 All at Hamelin Trust.

Together, we can make a lasting difference to the lives of those with learning disabilities using Day Opportunities.
