In honour of our 20th year, Nexus is also set to support 20 different charities over the next 20 months, including a local food bank, primary school and a Dog Trust Charity.
The charities have been chosen from staff nominations, and we have purposely selected a wide range of organisations so we cover as many different community groups as possible and a number of activities will take place to raise funds.
