The Brothers Trust was set up in 2017 by Nikki and Dom Holland. Tom Holland is the focal point of the charity and its fund raising efforts, but he is ably supported by his younger brothers – Sam, Harry and Paddy. Using Tom’s reach and popularity, the trust intends to run a number of events each year and the funds raised then being granted to charities who we support. The trust is keen to shine a light on charities who struggle to be heard in the noisy and competitive not-for-profit sector – and charities who can best demonstrate the most effective use of funds to profit the people in need and not on bloated administration.
