Triodos Bank only finances enterprises which create social, environmental or cultural added value. Key sectors include organic food and farming, renewable energy, social housing, and fair trade.

Transparency is a core value: customers are informed about the bank’s lending and can target their savings to particular areas of investment. A range of personal savings accounts are offered, and full banking services are available for businesses and charities.

Triodos Bank is an independent bank founded in the Netherlands in 1980. Its principles and independence are protected through a special shareholding trust. The UK office opened in 1995 and is based in Bristol.

tricker-blackie-architectsTricker Blackie Associates

Tricker Blackie Associates evolved from James Blackie’s practice, started in 1971, when Richard Tricker joined forces with him in 1991. The new practice added Richard’s skills and experience in the commercial field to James’ expertise in domestic and community design and conservation work.

This worked well with the practice expanding continuously until Richard’s untimely death in 2013. Undoubtedly this was a major setback which has now been overcome with the appointment of Ian O’Hanlon RIBA and the general revitalisation of the practice that this engendered.

The practice principles are still intact and ongoing – these are to serve our clients with loyalty and integrity giving them the benefit of our design skills to produce the best possible solution for them – maybe not the one they originally envisaged but hopefully far better. Our expertise includes crisp modern and harmonious contextual design, conservation of listed buildings, contract administration and project management – a full architectural service for our clients and their projects.


cropped-Header_Paint_newSainsbury Family Charitable Trusts

The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts is the operating office of 18 grant-making trusts established by three generations of the Sainsbury family. The trusts’ donations to charitable causes over several decades represent one of the leading examples of sustained philanthropy in Britain.

Each trust works autonomously as an independent legal entity with a separate board of trustees, actively led by an individual member of the family with keenly-followed interests.

The trusts only fund registered charities or activities with clearly defined charitable purposes.

The trustees take an active role in their grant-making, employing a range of specialist staff and advisers to research their areas of interest and bring forward suitable proposals. Many of the trusts work closely with their chosen beneficiaries over a long period to achieve particular objectives.
