Gresham Wealth Management are proud to announce the sponsorship of fundraising t-shirts for local brain injury charity BASIC. BASIC, which provides a wide range of rehabilitation services to individuals and families suffering with the after effects of brain and spinal injury, will utilise the t shirts at large sporting events such as the Great North Run and the London Marathon, helping to raise their profile across the UK. A number of Gresham team members met with Andy Golightly from the charity this week to reveal the new shirt design.
The sponsorship will see shirts being available to hand out to BASIC’s supporters for use during all manner of fundraisers, from large organised events to bag packs at supermarkets and quiz evenings, all the while helping to raise awareness of their vital work.
Gresham have supported BASIC for a number of years; last year Gresham Director Morven Millar took to the skies for the charity, participating in a wingwalk and raising over £1000.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Jonathan Young of Gresham Wealth Management said:
“We do a lot of work with victims of personal injury in terms of establishing trusts and have therefore seen first hand the devastating effects spinal and brain injuries can have on individuals. We are also responsible for the management of compensation awards; helping to ensure the care and financial needs of these individuals are met and providing long term financial security.
“BASIC provide a much needed source of assistance for people who have been left with the most devastating of injuries in the North West. They not only offer access to rehabilitation services for the sufferers of life-changing injuries, but also act as a vital support network for families”.
Andy Golightly of BASIC said:
“This year we are helping over 750 people from Greater Manchester and Cheshire, trying to rebuild their lives after the devastation of brain and spinal injury. Support from companies like Gresham Wealth Management is vital if we are to meet the growing need for our specialised rehabilitation services and we’d like to sincerely thank Gresham for their valuable support”.
BASIC recently opened a £500,000 Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment, or CAREN. Using cutting edge technology, the Virtual Reality system puts patients at the helm of life size interactive games, enables them to practice real life situations in a safe and controlled environment and teaches the basic skills necessary to recover quicker from brain and spinal injuries and other disorders.
