Charity Work

Hanover Dairies have been supporting rainbow trust children’s charity since 2008.

Over the years Trevor and the Hanover team have been raising funds for rainbow trust doing various fundraising challenges. With the help of our many loyal customers, suppliers, friends and family we have managed to successfully raise over £280,000 so far this amazing charity.

In 2008 Trevor Hanover walked the highlands and lowlands of Scotland from Glasgow to inverness for the charity. This would see Trevor end up in an inverness hospital with serious feet injuries to which he has never fully recovered. Trevor should have stopped walking long before the end but his determination and love for the rainbow trust organisation and the work they do kept him going.
