Tangent in collaboration with CMS Ergo, Silverline and Viasit have shown their support for the charity Reuben’s Retreat, providing them with much needed office furniture and accessories for their two sites.
Reuben’s Retreat was founded in 2012 following the tragic passing of Reuben Graham, aged just 23 months, due to a rare brain tumor. His mother, Nicola vowed to help others and created Reuben’s Retreat in her son’s memory, to help support families with children who have life limiting or terminal illnesses. Reuben’s Retreat will open its first phase, The Lodge, in October and The Gallery Clerkenwell’s partners generously provided furniture for the offices.
Nicola Graham, founder of Reuben’s Retreat comments:
‘We cannot thank the team at Tangent enough for bringing together The Gallery partners, who have been extremely generous, providing us with high quality office furniture that will help us expand our operations even further. We hope to welcome them to the Retreat soon so they can see the results of their generosity.’
