NET raise over £11,500 for Nottingham community groups

As with many companies, Nottingham Express Transit support charities throughout the year and they have recently revealed that in 2023 that raised £11,573 in funds for local community groups, charities and initiatives.

One of the key partnerships they had during 2023 was the Aspley Food Bank. This saw the team donate food and household essentials on a monthly basis, whilst NET staff volunteered at the food bank over the Christmas period. In 2024, the team will be taking the partnership further, with both monetary and community commitments set to continue throughout the year.

Their long-standing partnership with The Pythian Club also continued. This included joint ventures to local schools to educate on tram safety and anti-social behaviour, as well as raising £4,500 for the Club and its initiatives.

But that isn’t where they stopped as in 2023 they made contributions to other charities including the Nottingham Central Women’s Aid and Framework. NET participated in a charity golf day, hosted by Rothera Bray, which raised £5.902.

NET staff were also encouraged to support their own personal fundraising initiatives during 2023, all of which were then fund matched by NET.

Becki Horne, Business Engagement Manager at NET, said: “We’re aware of our position as one of Nottingham’s fundamental infrastructure businesses and therefore how we can help the people of Nottingham with more than just their travel needs.

“We’ve had a fantastic year of support and fundraising which has seen us partner with some brilliant local causes like The Pythian Club, Aspley Food Bank and Nottingham Central Women’s Aid who work hard to offer care and support to so many across the city.

“At a time when charities all across the UK are really feeling the pinch more than ever before, we remain committed to supporting the many charities and causes across the city that do such fantastic work helping those who need it most. Looking ahead to 2024, we’re looking forward to taking our efforts even further, and helping even more Nottinghamshire charities, community groups and local initiatives.

“In addition to support for the community through working with local causes, we’re also really passionate about seeing what we can do ourselves to ensure we’re supporting as many of our passengers as possible. The introduction of our Widgit travel guides last year was a key part of that, ensuring that as many people as possible were able to travel around the city for days out, work, study and more.”
