Gresham Duo Take on Manchester 10K for Headway

A duo from Gresham Wealth Management are taking on the Great Manchester 10K this year in aid of a North West brain injury charity.

Daniel Ardern and Gareth Jones will don their running shoes on 19th May 2019 to take part in Manchester’s most famous running event, fundraising for Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde. Self-confessed reluctant runners, Daniel, one of Gresham’s Chartered Financial Planners, and Gareth, a Paraplanner on our technical team, both made the decision to take part in this year’s 10K event at the start of the year as part of their plans to get fit for 2019!

With only two months to go until the big day, training is underway and fundraising has now commenced!

The team has chosen to support Headway after one of Gresham’s Directors became involved in working with the charity. Jonathan Young has been working with the charity in 2016 after he was invited to join Headway as a Director and Trustee.

Daniel commented:

“At Gresham, we provide ongoing investment advice to a number of clients who have received personal injury awards and we are therefore well aware of the difference that charities such as Headway can have in improving the lives of those who are less fortunate then us.

“Finding out more about Headway has opened my eyes to the everyday struggles brain injury sufferers have to contend with. A severe brain injury can come as the result of a traumatic accident or sudden illness – something that any of us could potentially experience out of the blue at any point in our lives. The work that Headway does in helping to fill in the gap by providing social and professional services for members is invaluable to its members.”

The Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde branch was formed in 2010 when Patrons Ian and Karen Kendrick’s son suffered a brain injury and was not able to travel the distance to other Headway groups or branches. Since then, the charity has grown in the services it provides and became an independent registered charity in 2014.

Running regular sessions for its members, including bimonthly drop-ins, annual events and days out, as well as access to professional services such as anger management, relaxation and physiotherapy, Headway’s services are a great support to both the members and their families – who often also become affected by the ongoing effects of their loved ones’ injuries. Additional money from fundraising will help to increase the support on offer to brain injury survivors and their families across the Fylde coast.

    I just want to thank you and your team so very much for all you do for me throughout the year. It is a real comfort to know that my investments are in such capable hands. I literally couldn’t do it on my own.
    You’ve solved that dilemma for me… Thank you for being so clear and honest as always.
    I knew I had to start the ball rolling with getting our finances sorted but it was a hard thing for me to do as it cements the fact that our lives have changed forever. You made the whole process so much easier.
    Morven’s guidance about pensions and investments has provided us with excellent returns, even during the recent turbulent financial times. She has been a helpful and friendly advisor for many years and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
    On behalf of Walk & Talk Group, I would like to thank you for the most informative, enjoyable and appropriate presentation you gave. Members found the session of great value and very useful.
    We feel we can phone at any time during office hours if we need anything clarifying. Our financial adviser knows our personal circumstances and is in tune with our goals and lifestyle. His advice has been and continues to be excellent.
    We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.
    Whilst my client’s situation is obviously very complicated, you made it very straight forward – quite an art!
    The professionalism of your service continues to give me confidence that we are pursuing the optimum route with our finances. The sound advice you provide is more critical than ever in the current climate.
    It’s lovely for us to have nice friendly advisors like Jonathan and Morven.
