The industry charity said: ‘Since 2015 we have quadrupled the number of people that we help every year and aim to grow further in the coming years, developing new programmes and providing a broader range of help to meet the complex needs of our beneficiaries. This growth means that we outgrew our accommodation and need to move.
‘The new offices are larger with more flexibility for us to develop. The work that we are doing is incredibly important to the lives of the people that it touches, so we have to be ready to adapt and meet changing needs; the new offices allow us to do that.
“We have more storage space and can host meetings. The move will also help us save money on non-charitable activity which is vitally important, as we always want to drive down our core costs and drive up the amount that we spend giving the help where it is so desperately needed.
“We are now settling in to our new space, so please direct any post to our new address (although our mail from Vyse Street in Birmingham is being redirected). Obviously, our e-mail addresses remain the same.
‘Our new contact information is: The Rainy Day Trust, 8 The Courtyard, Harris Business Park, Hanbury Road, Stoke Prior B60 4DJ; tel 01527 872545.
‘We would like to say a huge thank you to BHETA [British Home Enhancement Trade Association], KitchenCraft, Centurion Europe, Burg-Wachter and Stax Trade Centres for the furniture, safe, signage and office items that they donated to make the move a lot easier, and also to Calor for the manpower to make the move go so smoothly.’
