The Pendsey Trust

Carrick Read is proud to support The Pendsey Trust, a small charity which aims to provide educational and vocational opportunities for young people living with Type 1 diabetes in desperate poverty. In many places worldwide, an affordable supply of life-saving insulin is not available to these individuals, and many face an uncertain future.

The Pendsey Trust funds scholarships for such individuals to attend school or vocational training so that they can look forward to future employment and the chance to afford the costs of this incurable condition. The charity also offers the opportunity to sponsor the medical costs of a child until they are able to sustain these themselves, and Carrick Read is delighted to be able to do this for 13 year old Nandhini, pictured left.

Carrick Read also supports a number of other good causes throughout the year, including Sport Relief and Red Nose Day. We continue to encourage our staff to take part in charitable ventures.

The Pendsey Trust Christmas Card

Carrick Read continue to actively support The Pendsey Trust and were delighted to send their Christmas cards as the firm card this year, this was the first year the charity had produced cards and the design proved very popular.

All the proceeds from the Christmas card sales apart from the cost of printing went to the charity as it is entirely volunteer run. The card  design was also drawn without charge by a supporter, a young graphic designer Andrew Finnie.


Nandhini Update 2017

We have had our annual report on Carrick Read’s sponsor child Nandhini and we are delighted to learn she is coping well with her diabetes with the help of The Pendsey Trust and is also having her schooling paid for by us.

We sent some small gifts recently for her and she is pictured (right) at the diabetes clinic receiving them.
