Join us and celebrate 30 years of The Nelson Trust on Saturday 11th July at our Fete and Family Fun Day at the Star Centre, Hope Mills Business Park, Brimscombe, Stroud, GL5 2SE between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. Bring along friends, family and colleagues – the more the merrier! 

There’s something for everyone, including:

  • Trap the Rat 
  • Coconut Shy 
  • Dog Show
  • Big Brunch Band
  • Face painting
  • Bouncy Castle
  • Grand Prize Draw
  • Cake sale
  • School of Larks
  • Book Corner

If you can’t make it, you can still enter our celebration Prize Draw here to win one of four family days out to a top West Country attraction.

The success of our residential rehabilitation is largely down to massive collaboration with professionals, service providers, businesses and many individuals across the UK. By working together to create a network of support and advice, more people can get the help they need to overcome their addictions and rebuild their lives.

In the morning we are having a reunion for our old clients. If you were once a client or worked at The Nelson Trust please contact us (details below) to book your place. The reunion will take place in Brimscombe. So come along and meet old colleagues and friends and enjoy music, shares, and more.

We look forward to seeing you at this very special day. Please contact fundraising@nelsontrust.com or call 01453 732071 if you have any questions.
