Since June 2017, SDC Trailers have been raising money for Age NI through a range of employee and fundraising activities. Fundraising has taken place across all departments.

In addition to fundraising activities, the partnership within SDC Trailers is also hugely beneficial to both organisations for generating better brand awareness and engaging the local community.

At the time of appointment, SDC’s Enda Cushnahan was hugely impressed by Age NI’s presentation and track record

"We’re delighted to announce that our charity partner this year will be Age NI. After speaking to our staff and gathering their opinion on our next charity partner, it became clear that the staff were keen to work with a charity which provides support to older people. Age NI impressed us with the policy work they do, their wide range of support services for older people across Northern Ireland, their care for people with dementia and with the professionalism of their staff and leadership.”

Siobhan Casey Age NI Director of Marketing & Business Development at Age NI welcomed the new partnership:

"Age NI is delighted to be selected as SDC Trailers Charity Partner 2017-2019.Through the partnership there will be invaluable opportunities to deliver a range of activities that will support those most in need, especially people who are lonely, who don’t have enough money or require care and support to remain independent.
