Fundraising events

The Nelson Trust is honoured to have the support of a very active and dedicated voluntary Fundraising Committee which was established in 2004 by our former Chairman, the late Richard Lister.

The aim of the Committee is to raise funds for our work but also to increase awareness about the Nelson Trust and what we do.

Over the years, the Committee has developed a diverse programme of events which have become an established part of the Gloucestershire social calendar. The events aim to attract new audiences and increase the number of people involved in ongoing support for the Trust.
