The importance of giving back to our community and wider society can’t be understated and that’s because the secret to living is giving. After all, life is all about creating meaning. How do you create purpose in your life?
It’s not about what we do for ourselves: It’s about how you’re able to share with others to better the lives of the people around you. Your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world.
Purpose never comes from what we get, it comes from what we give.
e-trinity are therefore delighted to support the following charities and community activities which focus on the environment, health, wellbeing and the future.
Since starting the business in business in 2013, each year we have bought the same number of places at Crisis at Christmas as the business is old. So we are delighted to have paid for 7 places for those who are homeless to have somewhere warm to stay with a hot meal over Christmas. And, hopefully, with the support of the amazing volunteers, it will help some people along their journey out of homelessness.
It is easy for us to forget about the challenging and difficult times that other countries have compared to the relative comfort we live in. Raising a child and being a child in these countries is unimaginable for many of us. e-trinity recognise the amazing work that UNICEF undertake in some of the toughest environments, providing emergency relief, education, life saving food programmes, vaccines, drinking water and sanitation.
Businesses can’t perform without people, but people can’t perform without a healthy planet. e-trinity have therefore committed to create a climate positive workforce by teaming up with Ecologi. Ecologi invest in projects to plant trees and re-forest areas to reduce the impact we have on the world. They also undertake projects such as creating green energy from renewable sources and repairing bore holes to provide fresh drinking water to remote villages.

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust offer a wide range of health and social care services to people living in south east London and parts of Kent. This includes community health care such as district nursing and health visiting, care for people with learning disabilities and mental health care such as psychiatry, nursing and therapies. As a Governor, Frazer Rendell from e-trinity undertook a voluntary role which is a key part of the healthcare governance process to help ensure that the best services and care were available for the local community and to be a voice for some of the more vulnerable service users.
Unique in the higher education sector, the Mentoring Programme for hospitality students at Oxford Brookes University links postgraduate and final-year undergraduate students with senior, experienced leaders.
The Programme assists with students’ transition from education to graduate employment and enables them to develop a network of professional contacts. Crucially, it also enables students to develop particular skills and attributes linked to effective management and leadership. Students report that engaging in self-diagnosis of their personal skills sets at the start of the programme enables them to engage in development opportunities with mentors. Frazer Rendell from e-trinity has been mentoring students at Oxford Brookes since 2013.
