Enterprise Russell in a not-for-profit Charitable Trust, run by some 40 interesting, helpful volunteers of many nationalities and backgrounds. We are a true example of community pride in action.
We run an internet cafe & office in York Street equipped with 8 fast internet terminals including one with Skype, plus a wi-fi hub. We provide for downloading files & photographs to CD/DVD and memory sticks, plus both black/white and colour copying, faxing and laminating. Ours is a friendly, helpful service that generates significant net income, with all profits being donated to the local community.
We also publish the 16 page, high quality mixed colour and black/white “Russell Lights” newsletter each fortnight on a strictly non-profit making basis both in hard copy and electronic formats. This is widely read by locals, visitors and Russell “swallows” who winter overseas. This provides an excellent low-cost, effective means for local businesses and individuals to advertise virtually anything. This helps to promote local businesses and to keep the wider community informed about what is going on through the diverse articles featured in our columns. The modest revenue from this advertising covers the production costs of this quality publication.
Enterprise Russell has donated about $180,000 to a wide-variety of merit-worthy organizations over the last nine years.. This works out at close to $20,000 per year, with roughly 40% going towards health initiatives, 20% each to community and youth affairs and nearly 10% towards the environment.
