We invite all our friends and supporters to join us in celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2015.
The Nelson Trust was founded in 1985 near Stroud by Roy and Mary Brash as a supportive shared residence for people recovering from alcohol addiction. Over the years it developed into a residential treatment centre and has more recently developed community based services including Family Focus and ISIS Women's Centres in both Gloucester and Swindon. Chief Executive John Trolan says "In the past 30 years the Nelson Trust has supported thousands of people into recovery. We have worked with their families and friends. We have never tired of campaigning so that every addict and alcohol who has a desire to free themselves from dependence, has the opportunity and support to do so and that everyone affected knows that there is hope. We are inspired in our efforts by recovery stories of our clients and we would not have achieved half of what we have without many friends and supporters. In this, our anniversary year, we want to showcase the impact of our work in helping people achieve recovery and secure the funds we need to ensure that we enter the next 30 years with the resources to build on our success".
Throughout the year we have number of fundraising events including the Stroud Trail Marathon, Clay Shoot and Black Tie Dinner, a Charity Golf Day and much more including our big summer celebration event. Each month we will be publicising new stories about the impact of recovery of clients, past and present, and their families.
