Ruddi's Retreat

At Trojan Plastics, we strongly believe the local community is as important as the global environment. Often small local charities struggle to have their voice heard over the national charities and yet they are no less deserving of people’s support. As part of our commitment to the local community we look to sponsor a charity each year. We are therefore delighted to support a very local charity, Ruddi’s Retreat. By supporting Ruddi’s Retreat we aim to raise its profile across the region as well as help the charity to raise money.

Ali Jones started Ruddi’s Retreat when her son Ruddi, an inspirational young man, became very ill with cancer when he was just six and a half months old. After many years of heartache, Ali realised that one way help others in a similar situation was to offer families the opportunity to create happy memories in what are otherwise very desperate times. 

It is the aim of Ruddi’s Retreat to help families with seriously ill children to have access to a holiday home for free. They help families with young children suffering from the effects and after effects of Cancer treatment, and life limiting illnesses to enjoy family holidays together with minimal financial cost and maximum fun.

We feel privileged that we can help Ruddis Retreat and help them make a difference to families lives. If you spare five minutes to watch Ali’s story you will understand why we want to help.
