Premier's charity of 2015

Cavell Nurses Trust

At Premier, we like to get behind and offer our support to all sorts of local activities and charities – The Board of Directors have agreed this year to support Cavell Nurses Trust.


Cavell Nurses Trust provides vital support to all UK nurses during very difficult times.  They offer help to registered nurses, midwives, healthcare assistants, student nurses and retired nurses who have given a lifetime of caring and compassion.

Cavell Nurses Trust formally known as ‘Nurse Aid’ was originally set up in 1917 in memory of British Nurse, Edith Cavell who is celebrated for her work during Word War 1. 
She cared for wounded soldiers irrespective of nationality and was arrested after helping some 200 allied soldiers escape into neutral Holland. 
Edith Cavell was subsequently court martialed, found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a firing squad.

We thank our staff and clients for all of their support on this worthy cause.

Charities and fund raising

Our Sports and Social Committee meets every month to go through the ad hoc requests for financial support.  We’ll always do our best to get involved and do what we can, although we regret we can’t meet every request.

MYCO

Since 2009, we’ve been sponsoring the Musical Youth Company of Oxford (MYCO) – a theatre company for under 18’s.  Our sponsorship has helped bring recent productions to the stage, including West Side Story and Jesus Christ Superstar.
