How you can say Thanks

Braided Rivers Community Trust

The Braided Rivers Community Trust (formally Ashburton Licensing Trust - ALT) has been helping groups and community organisations since 1950 under the ALT brand. In 2021, Braided Rivers Community Trust (BRCT) was reconstituted from the ALT and we have been working hard to build a presence in the community, under our new logo so we appreciate that our new logo is visible, clear and consistent everywhere it appears.

As you are a big part of what makes Ashburton a special place to us, we greatly appreciate it when you write a thank you letter, send a picture, or share a story. So please follow the guidelines we’ve set out for use of our logo.

Signage at your event

BRCT has a tear drop banner and a large banner that you can borrow for your event if you wish to acknowledge our support. A minimum of 2 working days’ notice is needed to prior to collection. Please take care of the borrowed items. If they are not returned or is damaged whilst in your care, we may require you to meet replacement/repair costs. The cost of repair or replacement can reduce the funds available for distribution each year.
